The coun­try’s only pro­fes­sional foot­ball player Roy Kr­ishna be­lieves they have to work as a team as they pre­pare for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in Au­gust. The Siberia na­tive from Labasa said yes­ter­day that he was ready to rep­re­sent the coun­try at the Olympic Games.

“There is going to be a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions from our fans so there­fore team­work is very im­por­tant to me,” he said.

“It is going to be hard play­ing against teams that have had ex­po­sure in the world of foot­ball, but noth­ing is im­pos­si­ble.” Kr­ishna said the team need to stick to their game plan and trust in the game tac­tics that is set-up by na­tional foot­ball head coach Frank Fa­rina. “We will have a good run against some of the best teams out there and we will be out to prove that we mean busi­ness.” Kr­ishna said he would con­tinue to fo­cus on en­gage­ments with his Welling­ton Phoenix Club in New Zealand be­fore join­ing the na­tional team for the Rio Olympics.

“I have learnt a lot dur­ing my en­gage­ment with Phoenix and there is still more to be learned but the bot­tom line is that I am sat­is­fied with where I am to­day,” Kr­ishna said.
