Since his debut for the senior men's team shortly before turning 20 in 2007, the Fijian striker has emerged as a pathfinder and this milestone cements his legendary status in the sport.
Krishna's journey from a 19-year-old debutant who scored a hat trick to being the first player to reach 50 caps is a remarkable testament to his enduring commitment to representing his nation on the football pitch.
Fiji Football Association President, Rajesh Patel says he has sent his congratulatory message to Krishna on this milestone.

Patel adds as he captains the squad against Tahiti, Krishna's legacy in Fijian football will be etched in history.
