Former Oceania champions back with a mission

Maciu Malo
Monday, April 07, 2014

WAITAKERE United team landed in the country yesterday with a mission to accomplish.

The New Zealand-based side is keen to lay its hands on the prestigious Oceania Football Champions League title after their last win in 2008.

Co-coach Paul Temple said the team expected tough competition from island teams but this would not deter his side's mission to win the tournament.

He said the side had been drawn in a tough pool alongside Solomon Warriors, Kiwi FC and AS Pirae.

Temple said players had been urged to expect tough challenges from other teams.

"We know it's going to be really tough and the Pacific island teams will be strong especially playing under the hot sunshine," he said.

"We have a very tough pool and we are looking forward to the game against the Solomon Warriors.

"It has been long enough since our last title win in 2008 and we will try and make our fans proud this year.

"Most of our players have played in the Ocenia Champions League competition and they know what to expect," he added.

Waitakere will play its first match against Kiwi FC on Wednesday at Churchill Park.
