Fiji’s coach, Jerry Sam acknowledges the need for swift improvement following their 7-2 defeat against New Zealand on Monday.

“We don’t put our heads down yet. We do believe that we can make it into the semis and the game against Vanuatu as I said is a must win for us and a do-or-die for us, so like I said we have to do it in a hard way. Anything can happen in a way that we regroup, and we fight together, nothing is impossible, so teamwork is more important than individuals.”
