Training camp to test U20 players

WITH the Fiji under-20 side returning to camp yesterday, team coach Ravinesh Kumar is calling for commitment and discipline from the players.

He said they were closely monitoring the attitude of players because they wanted to select a genuine team to represent the nation in the Oceania U20 World Cup qualifiers in May in New Zealand.

"Their first test will be reporting to camp on time," Kumar said.

The camp is for two weeks during which the team will play warm-up matches against the Ba, Lautoka and Nadi district teams.

Kumar said the warm-up matches would be a big test for the players as they face some of the senior and more experienced players of the Western Division.

He said the three districts were giants in the soccer circle and would provide a good challenge for the players.

"We want to see them perform to their level best and their performance against players much older and more experienced than them."

The response of the players to the program in camp will also be monitored.

"We would like to see them perform to their very best in camp to show us they deserve a spot in the final squad."
