Moshin managed to amaze football administrators present at the event and earned himself the champion of the day title.

He was joined by 80 other participants from all over Lautoka.

Fiji Football Association President Rajesh Patel says they grabbed the opportunity of hosting the program during the Punjas Battle of the Giants tournament.
