Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) recently released a 31-men provisional squad for the Tri-Nation in March and the OFC Nations Cup in June with lots of good young players including some players that represented Solomon Islands in the U17 World Cup in Brazil last year like Raphael Lea’i, Leon Kofana and Javin Wae.
However the big news does not come from the called-up players. SIFF technical director Moses Toata announced that four players are suspended from the national teams due to a indiscipline case that happened last year right before the Pacific Games held in Samoa: Benjamin Totori, Dennis Ifunaoa, Joses Nawo and Michael Boso.
According to sources the indiscipline case was a drinking spree. Toata pointed that these players were very close to not travelling to Samoa with the team last year. However the disciplinary decision was finally taken – “When players do not respect the rules, they have no place in the team. It is simple”, said Toata.
It is not known the duration of their suspensions but Oceania Football Center will keep investigating in order to keep our followers updated about it.
