Ivan Kumar shines in his debut in New Zealand winter football season

The NRF Men’s Conference started this weekend with four matches. South Auckland Rangers went to Starling Park to face Ranui Swanson and took home all three points as they won the match by 3-2.

Fijian midfielder Ivan Kumar was one of the best players in the match and he played an important role on Rangers’ win by delivering two assists for his teammates. Rangers’ goalkeeper Raid Khan – who is also from Fiji – was also a key player in the game by making some great saves to seal their win – “We want the promotion to Lotto NRFL Division 2,” said Kumar after the match.

This is Kumar’s first experience in a foreign club and he showed that he is able to perform in a good level for his brand new club. The 23-year-old midfielder last played for Suva in Fiji before joining Rangers.
