The Vodafone Fiji Under-23 football side, this afternoon takes on a rejuvenated New Caledonia side in the Four Nations Friendship Cup in Vanuatu.
Fiji drew 1-all in its first match against the Solomon Islands on Saturday, while New Caledonia lost 1-0 to the hosts.
Speaking to FBC Sports from Vanuatu, Fiji team coach Juan Carlos Buzzetti says New Caledonia will be a changed team for the match today.
“They have a very solid squad and skillful players. For the first game they only had 14 players in total because the plane didn’t fit everybody but yesterday the other seven players and other official arrived, so they have a full strength squad today. It wasn’t the case against Vanuatu. We need to be very well prepared because they played very well and should have had at least a draw against Vanuatu. It won’t be an easy game at well, they are good and very well prepared have very skillful players.”
The game starts at 4pm.
