Roy Krishna on attack for Fiji against Northern Marianas

Captain Roy Krishna netted three goals as the Team Fiji men’s football side beat Northern Marianas 10-0 in their opening Pacific Games match.

By halftime Krishna had already scored a hat-trick with a double from Sairusi Nalaubu and young Nabil Begg getting one.

Fiji had 90% of the possession in the first half against a young Northern Marianas outfit.

Etonia Dogelau, Thomas Dunn, Gabby Matanisiga plus an own goal pushed Fiji further in the second spell.

Despite the win, Krishna says that they still have few areas to work on.

“Of course I’m happy with the win, but I think we still need to work on being patient with the ball. I think sometime we rush in the final third but look when you score early goals, everybody wants to get their names in the score sheet we just have to learn to be patient.”

Fiji plays Tahiti on Tuesday and a win will put them in the semi-finals.
