Lack of preparation time is the major is the major factor that is affecting the Vodafone Fiji side at the OFC Futsal Championships underway in Suva.
Fiji has lost its opening two, matches in the tournament and Coach Intiaz Khan says this is not a surprise.
“I have been saying from the first day, strength and conditioning wasn’t enough. We compare our six weeks preparations to other teams who have been preparing for more than four to six years. We don’t have seasonal players. They have just started now. They need to build their muscles, they need to build their body, their strengths to last. I am worried of what will happen till Friday and Saturday.”
Fiji went down to Vanuatu 5-2 while they lost to New Caledonia 5-1 on the first day.
Today, Fiji will face Tahiti at 8pm.
Prior to this, New Caledonia faces Vanuatu at 3pm while New Zealand and the Solomon Islands will battle at 5:30pm.
