More friendly fixtures for Fiji

Building on from their friendly matches against Solomon Islands last week, Fiji have lined up two more friendly matches against Estonia and Indonesia later this year.

After Fiji’s impressive results against their fellow Oceania opponents – drawing 1-1 in their first match then winning 1-0 in their second match – Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel believes the two clashes against teams from outside the region will contribute to the national team’s continuing development.

“There is good news for Fiji FA and our football fans in general,” he said.

“Estonia is a team from Europe and it has been finalised and they have responded positively to play and they’re willing to come here and play.”

Following the two matches, Patel plans to keep the momentum of the national team, working with sponsors to line up more international fixtures.

“We will try to get more international friendly matches,” he said.

“Fiji FA will continue to work with sponsors and give the fans what they deserve in terms of the skills the players are showing and the facilities.”

Fiji will travel to Indonesia for their first international friendly in August before returning home to host Estonia in November.
