Australian-based brothers set to join Junior Bula Boys for U-20 World Cup

Marcus and Lachlan Lal, the sons of former national football player Jason Lal, are set to make their mark on the international stage as they prepare to represent Fiji at the U-20 World Cup in May. The young footballers are currently part of the Fiji U-20 team that is set to play friendly matches in Gold Coast in Australia. The duo will join the squad when the Fijian team arrives in the country.

The journey for the Lal brothers has not been without its challenges, with visa and passport issues initially causing some concern. However, Fiji Football Association Technical Director Timo Jankowski confirmed to local media that these issues have now been resolved, paving the way for the brothers to represent their country at the upcoming tournament.

Lachlan Lal has already gained some experience on the international stage, having represented Fiji at the U-19 Oceania Championship. The team finished in 2nd place, after a 3-0 loss to New Zealand in the final. Marcus was unfortunately unable to join his brother at the tournament due to paperwork delays. However, he continued to support his brother from afar, and is now excited to join him in representing Fiji at the U-20 World Cup.
