Former Fiji Football mid-fielder Shalen Lal has called on the Fiji Football Association to contract more players overseas to improve the standard of the game in Fiji.
Lal says if the players are contracted, it will help the national team in qualifying to the World Cup.
“New Zealand has gone to another level, they have contracted their top players out of New Zealand and I think Fiji needs to start doing that, if they can have about 50 percent of their players contracted outside of Fiji playing in those top leagues I’m pretty sure Fiji will come to a level where they will start to beating New Zealand and doing well at the World Cup qualifiers.”
Meanwhile, Fiji Football team moves into camp next month to prepare for the World Cup stage three qualifiers.
