Krishna is three goals away to tie the record of Esala Masi as all-time top goalscorer of Fiji national team – and also nine appearances away to be tie with the same Masi as the player who most represented Fiji internationally. The striker that is going to turn 33 this month is arguably the best Fijian player ever. “This week I join the national camp led by our new head coach. It’s going to be a fruitful one as it will help me get my fitness back up and I get to play alongside the future stars of football in Fiji“, said Krishna.

The striker is going to be more time in Fiji as the season in India will only start in November. Unlike other seasons, this season will entirely take place behind closed doors in three venues across the state Goa due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
