Indonesia Vs Fiji, Beware Stoke City Defender!
Indonesia national team must be wary of a number of foreign players owned by Fiji in a test match at the Patriot Stadium, Bekasi, Saturday (09/02/2017) at 16.00 pm.
For the match, coach Christophe Gamel summoned 30 players, four of whom played overseas. Top top is Scott Wara who plays for U-18 Stoke City team, English Premier League club.
The 17-year-old defender has never recorded a defense against Stoke’s senior team. He only played for the U-18 team as much as 18 times and the U-23 team once.
In addition to Wara, three other players are Shravan Sharama, Krith Kumar and Roy Krishna. The last three names are graze in the Australian League.
The presence of Wara as a delegation of Fiji in the Premier League would be an achievement. In the past, Fiji is not a country seen in the world of football.
