U19 soccer on TV

THERE is good news for local soccer fans following the national under-19 side's bid to become the first Fijian team to feature in any soccer World Cup.

Their matches at the Oceania Football Confederation under-20 Championship, which serves as the U20 World Cup Oceania qualifiers, will be aired live on FBC TV from next week.

The playoffs begin next week on Friday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva and will conclude at the end of the month.

FBC acting chief executive and chief financial officer Vimlesh Sagar said delayed coverage of the teams would also be shown on TV.

"Those people who are interested in sponsoring the coverage are welcome to come and talk to us," he said.

National U19 coach Ravinesh Kumar said the team was slowly building up to the playoffs.

He said the two overseas-based players who were brought in after five players were dropped from the side would not face any trouble fitting into the side.

New Zealand-based Altaf Saheb and Mohammed Shoaib Khan have replaced Iosefo Verevou, goalkeeper Waisea Yavala, midfielder Kelvin Naidu, striker Aveen Kumar and defender Samuela Gavo.

"We have seen them both and Altaf had been part of the U17 side a few years ago and we played against them in our New Zealand tour."
