Macau friendly match locked in
By Taromane Martin
THE Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) is yet to confirm request by the Fiji Football Association for an international friendly match between their two national soccer teams.
According to a report carried in the Fiji Times newspaper, Fiji FA Competitions Manager Mr Amitesh Pal had confirmed September 5th as the date for the friendly match and Suva’s ANZ Stadium as the venue.
SIFF Media Officer Simon Abana confirmed while SIFF had received the Fiji-Solomon Islands international friendly match request he is still awaiting official response from the federation executives for confirmation.
Mr Abana however confirmed that the proposed friendly match with the Macau national men’s football team is still set to happen on August 28.
Should SIFF agree to Fiji FA request for the friendly match it will see both countries meeting each other for the 28th time.
Solomon Islands have won six of the last 28 meetings while Fiji won 11 and drawing 10 times.
The last meeting between the two countries happened December last year where the match ended nil-all.
