THE future looks bright for the Fiji women's football team, says Vodafone Fiji women's head coach Marika Rodu.

The team is playing in the 2017 Pacific Mini Games which starts at Port Vila Stadium in Vanuatu tomorrow.

Rodu has a young side as he eyes to develop the team for future competitions.

"The time frame was short as we could have done a lot more with the girls, but I am impressed of what we have achieved so far," he said.

"The girls have a lot of opportunities to grow and develop further.

"They will not fully develop until 2019 and for them the Pacific Mini Games is one phase of development and they will be surely tested in the competitions from the other countries."

Fiji will play Tonga in their first competition at 11am (Fiji Time) tomorrow at Port Vila Stadium.

"We are a young squad so we do not know the composition of players.

"It will be a good ground to test the players compared to the men's team as we do not have the luxury of the international matches and Pacific Mini Games give us an opportunity to grow and develop."
