The national men’s football team are expecting a few more international friendly matches as part of their preparation for the upcoming Nation’s Cup in Papua New Guinea in May this year.
Head coach Moses Toata confirmed this.
“We are looking at bringing two teams or a team for two games next month and we will have at least two more tours before May,” Toata told Sunday Sport.
“The team is looking good after the last tour and we are looking at stepping up training with the appointment of a trainer early next week to boost our training,” he said.
Sunday Sports understands the squad have resumed their training sessions.
Trainings are expected to intensify in the coming weeks as they prepare for the Nations Cup tournament which is also the first stage of the World Cup Qualifiers.
As part of the squad’s preparation they went on a week-long tour to Australia earlier this month.
Despite losing their three friendly matches, Toata was satisfied with the team’s performance.
He said the defeats are not what matters but the tests they’ve undergone to identify the strength and weaknesses of the squad.
