The dual International is doing his individual training in Honiara after both the national football & futsal teams’ training were postponed for an indefinate period of time“, posted recently Solomon Islands Football Federation media.

SIFF also stated the governing body Technical Director is pleased with the commitment of Lea’alafa and urges the footballers of the country to follow his example: “[…] “Moses Toata is pleased to see Micah continue to be a role model for his peers in a tiring time like this. During this Covid 19 Epidemic it is extremely important that players find space to exercise and keep fit“, Toata said. “Regular exercise will also improve antibody levels which is good for this time. I also encouraged other players to do private exercise to stay in shape“, added the former Solomon Warriors head coach Moses Toata.

With the frustrating news OFC cancelled the most important football tournament of the region, Lea’alafa hopes COVID-19 will not force FIFA to postpone the FIFA Futsal World Cup, that is schedule to take place in Lithuania – in the most affected continent by the pandemic – this September, so the star-player will have another chance to show his skills in what would be his 4th appearance at a FIFA Futsal World Cup.
