The Fiji national team are struggling with a covid-outbreak in their OFC Women’s Nations Cup squad.
Head Coach Lisa Cole had to sit out the 1-1 opening draw with the Solomon Islands due to the virus, according to local media outlet FBC News.
Men’s head coach, Danish Flemming Serritslev, stepped in to take charge of the match.
According to him a few players are out, including striker Cema Nasau and vice-captain Luisa Tamanitoakula.
“We have been a bit handicapped missing two or three of our absolute best players, Jotivini at midfield is a very strong player and we know what Cema can do, she is the top scorer in the league but hopefully they will soon be fit before the next game,” Serritslev said, according to FBC.
