Youngster making waves in All-Star League

Alatise joins 80 players, both boys and girls, from various clubs participating in the on-going National Youth League who have been chosen to take part in the All-Star League which is divided into four teams and played over two divisions – U-12 and U-15.
Alatise says making a representative team is a big achievement for him as he is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps.
“My dad encouraged me to play football, he’s the head coach for our club. He tells me to be smart while playing and always keep a low profile during a game,” Alatise says.
“Playing football is different from other sports and being elegant with decision-making is needed I want to be part of the Samoa men’s national team. I can see myself with a bright future in football and I’m excited to learn new things along the road.”
The All Star League is an initiative implemented by the FFS technical department with the aim of targeting players that have the potential to become future national representatives.
The league kicked off on 11 May and will run for five weeks.
