Maciu Malo

LANKY Ba striker Saula Waqa and Nadi's prolific goal scorer Rusiate Matarerega will bolster the Vodafone Fiji soccer team against Estonia next weekend in Suva.

The two will provide tough competition upfront for the team with Samuela Nabenia, Christopher Wasasala and Napolioni Qasevakatini also vying a spot for the run-on team.

Head coach Christophe Gamel recalled the two strikers to strengthen the team's campaign.

Also joining the side is Lautoka midfielder Zibraaz Saheb.

The side defeated Lautoka in a warm-up match at Lautoka's Churchill Park on Sunday and is on course to produce the goods despite the unavailability of some top players.

Gamel said the boys combined well at training and would give their best for the game.

"The team is doing well but now I have to make a bit of more selection process because the players do not give me a good feedback," he said.

"The camp is going well but the quality is not there. I have to work more on all the possibility, how to answer hard games.

"I continue to trust my Bula Boys, they have pride and will surely answer during the game," he said.

"They are all professionals, they play fast and will give us a lot of trouble but it is interesting to see how we face these kinds of players."

The game will be held at the ANZ Stadium.
