The Digicel Fiji Kulas side for the upcoming OFC Women’s Olympic Qualifiers has been named and according to head coach Angeline Chua, the team is a mixture of top senior players who took part in the South Pacific Games and the best performers from the Young Kulas team including one overseas-based player.

Chua says they aim to top their group in the qualifiers, win all matches and score as many goals as they can at the tournament. She says this strategic approach is aimed at potentially facing defending champions New Zealand in the later stages of the competition.

The team will also see the return of Koleta Likuculacula, Seruwaia Vasuitoga, and Adi Anasimeci Volitikoro who spent a year playing in Australia.

Labasa defender Unaisi Tuberi will captain the side and will be assisted by Ba striker Cema Nasau.

The Fiji Kulas side:

Seruwaia Vasuitoga, Filomena Racea, Adi Litia Bacaniceva, Asela Cokansiga, Adi Anasimeci Manutawake, Cema Nasau, Koleta Matamanitvuto, Preeya Singh, Elesi Tabunase, Luisa Tamani Tamanitoakula, Kasanita Taufa, Pijila Kaliwaca, Evivi Buka, Unaisi, Tuberi, Seruwaia Laulaba, Sofi Diyalowai, Narieta Leba, Ema Mareia, Angeline Rekha, Selai, Grace Tikoisuva, Sisilia Kuladina, Mereseni Waqal and Sonia Alfred.

The Fiji Kulas will leave for Samoa tomorrow.
