FIJI Football Association coaching director Juan Carlos Buzzetti will be keeping a close watch on potential national reps in the final rounds of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants in Suva this weekend.

With top four teams to battle for the final spot at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow, Buzzetti and his team will be hunting the best players to guide the national side to next year's Pacific Games.

The Uruguayan mentor said the focus would be on the consistency of the players.

"We have been looking at a number of players from the national league and Fiji FACT and we will continue monitoring them in the BOG," Buzzetti said.

"We have the Inter District Championship next but we want to start our preparation as early as October for the Pacific Games which will be held in July next year."

Buzzetti said they wanted to select a young squad and build the side for the future competitions.

He said they would retain the core of the squad from their previous international outing.

"It's too early to make predictions on who will be in the squad because we still got some games to look at before we can release the provisional squad.

"The opportunity is there for everyone and we are closely monitoring the performance of the players."
