Our bula boys lived up to expectations and played as a solid unit to keep the fast paced Solomons attack at pace. While Fiji showcased a wonderful brand of soccer, they need to maintain possession and be patient to capitalise on the numerous scoring opportunities.
Had our strikers been on target, Fiji would have bagged more goals.
Nonetheless, this win was long overdue and Coach Christophe Gamel deserves a round of applause for getting the victorious bula boys in a short period of time.
Gamel is exploiting the talents of our boys in style.
More regular international matches are bound to bring back the exciting days of the national soccer team in the late 80s and early 90s when we matched teams like the All Whites, Tahiti and Australia.
Gamel has brought in flair in our game and the boys are adapting well to his fast and tactical aspect of the game.
Gamel also exposed many young talents and the boys did not let him down.
If we are serious about qualifying to the next World Cup, then we must get a pool of young and exciting talents and pick players on form and not name.
Chris Wasasala, Tevita Koroi and Saula Waqa did well in the national jumper.
Once again, thank you boys and the coaching staff for a job well done!Home | Top
