THE Fiji football team received a boost to its preparations for the two international friendly games next month.

The Fiji Football Association in a statement issued today said that Semi Scott Wara, the 18-year-old defender who has made his English Football debut while on loan from Stoke City will be featuring for the Vodafone Fiji National Football team.

Association president, Rajesh Patel confirmed Wara’s club has given the green light and he will be featuring for Fiji in the two international friendlies next month.

Patel said it’s a great boost for Fiji Football.

“It’s a great news that Wara is now available to play for Fiji against Solomon Islands and Singapore during this window and we are grateful to Stoke City for making him available.

“We have been trying to get him since March for the Philippines tour but they were not ready to release him, we kept trying and they have finally agreed to release him,” Patel said.
He said they are also in talks with Wellington Phoenix to secure the services of Roy Krishna for this international window.

“We are also trying to get Roy Krishna in as well to put up a formidable team to play the two internationals.

“Our players will have a chance to learn from his experiences, behavior, training sessions and all other aspects of being in a professional player.”

Fiji hosts Solomon Islands on September 5 before playing Singapore National Team on September 11 in Singapore.
