After two years away from Fiji Football tournaments, rising football star Josaia Sela is ready to return to the Digicel Fiji FACT.

The 19-year-old broke his shin during the Battle of the Giants competition in 2020, forcing him to miss over six months of action.

Sela, like many others, believed his career ended, but he persevered through an intense six months of therapy sessions to make his return.

“When I was injured, I thought my career was over and my mother kept motivating me. I always prayed and kept motivating myself that I will be back.”
