Arguably the most important football player from Vanuatu currently is Auckland City’s defender Brian Kaltak – and he’s proving it every single match. This weekend he will be lining up for the Navy Blues in a key clash against Team Wellington, but he had shown his quality in the previous match of his against Hawke’s Bay setting up the winner in the final minute of the game.
