3 Fijian players who must be wary of the Indonesian national team
Indonesia national team will face the Fiji team at the Patriot Stadium, Bekasi, Saturday (2/9/2017). On paper, Indonesia is still better than Fiji. So far, the Red and White teams still occupy the position of 170 in the FIFA rankings, while Bula Boys are in the order of 180.
In addition, Indonesia will also perform with the best strength. The best senior players who competed in League 1 have been selected Luis Milla. While one name, namely Satria Tama of the Indonesian national team U-22 also got a chance to replace Kurnia Meiga.
Instead, Bula Boys come with an average 23-year-old player. Fiji national team is also not reinforced Stoke City player, Scott Wara for not getting permission from his club.
However, the Indonesian national team should not underestimate the strength of the opponent. Because, Fiji national team also did not want to come all the way just to be a month-monthly Indonesia.
Three Fijian players at least deserve more attention than the Red and White troops. One of them is Roy Krishna. This player is not only skilled in the green field, but also skilled in the futsal arena.
Roy Krishna is the most senior player in the Fijian stronghold. He is the team captain and the most experienced gurant.
Krishna made his debut for Fiji at the 2007 South Pacific Games. He has also played for his country in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. In 2010, Krishna was summoned to the futsal team for the OFC Futsal Championship 2010.
In addition, the number 9 player has also scored the team’s only goal in the 2016 Olympics. Keep in mind, the player who currently strengthens the A-League club, Wellington Phoenix, it had scored against Malaysia in a trial June 26, 2016 ago.
In addition to Krishna, two other Fijian players are also worth watching out for. Check out his review on the following page.
