Vet­eran striker and mid­fielder Joseph Mishra is look­ing for­ward to his sec­ond Pun­jas Bat­tle of the Gi­ants tour­na­ment with Go Fry Nas­inu.

Turn­ing 34, next week Mishra said he was grate­ful to be still play­ing among young play­ers who gave him so much re­spect.

“First of all I re­spect the way that they treat me here as a se­nior player.

“It is a great feel­ing when you talk to the younger ones and they lis­ten to you at the same time,”Mishra said. He was one of the key play­ers that helped the Nas­inu team to be pro­moted to the Voda­fone Premier League in 2018.

“Prepa­ra­tion has been go­ing well since we have been train­ing in a good ground, bet­ter train­ing fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.

“We are com­bin­ing well and we can be deadly if we click on the day.” He started play­ing when he was 16 with the Nas­inu team while he was a stu­dent of Rishikul Sanatan Col­lege.

How­ever, his first B.O.G tour­na­ment was with Suva when he was 19 Play­ing along his for­mer Navua team­mates, Lorima Dau, Taniela Waqa and Simione Ta­man­isau was some­thing that con­trib­uted de­vel­op­ment as a player.

He urges young play­ers to work to­wards their dream.

He also asked the Nas­inu fans to sup­port them in prayers.
