The Vodafone Futsal Inter-District Championship was contested at FMF Gymnesium in the past weekend and Suva were crowned the tournament champions after beating Lami by 3-2 in the final clash. The team coached by Vivek Nadan counted on some well-known players like defender Laisenia Raura and forward Ravnesh Karan Singh.
Besides these players, Nadan also counted on two players from Solomon Islands: Marlon Nonone and Patrick Taroga. Both footballers are known from 11-a-side football as Taroga plays for Suva and Nonone plays for Nasinu in Vodafone Premier League – the major football league from Fiji.
Solomon Islands are known for being the strongest nation from Oceania when it comes to futsal. Taroga and Nonone scored one goal each in the tournament for Suva. Both players are now back to 11-a-side football as they will come to the pitch for their teams on this weekend in Vodafone Premier League’s eighth matchweek.
