One of the most important players from Solomon Islands in the 1990’s, Batram Suri is still involved with football as he became one of the best head coaches in the country. The 49-year-old legend has already coached clubs in Vanuatu and U-20 and U-23 National Teams from his homeland.

Now, Suri is having a very interesting challenge in his career: to lead Renbel Ibis in Solomon Cup, one of the most traditional tournaments in the country. Ibis did not have a good start in the tournament, as they were defeated by Makira Ulawa by 5-0 in he opening clash. However, the 2-2 draw against Isabel Frigates brought hopes to the fans, who believe that they can still fight for a spot in the semifinals.

With two more matches to play in the group stage, Suri relies on the talent of Pateson Tongaka and Steve Mane in today’s do or die clash against Central Shields. Both teams need to win, since the loser of this match can be eliminated from the competition with a game in advance.

The clash between Renbel and Central is scheduled to kick-off at 4pm (local time) and it is going to be livstreamed by Solomon Islands Football Federation on Facebook. You can check more details about 2020 Solomon Cup by clicking here.
