Taniela Waqa announces a date for his football retirement

After more than two decades being a football player, Taniela Waqa announces that he will retire from football at the end of this year. The 37-year-old defender recently helped Labasa to clinch the title of 2020 Inter-District Championship.

Waqa has a long and successful career as he lifted many trophies over the years. He was part of Fiji National Team’s squad that won the gold medal at 2003 Pacific Games. He played an important role in this tournament by scoring a goal in the 2-1 victory over Tahiti in the semi-finals. In all, Waqa played 35 matches for the Bula Boys, scoring four goals.
