Solomon Islands Team for World Cup Named


THE Solomon Islands Kurukuru Tuesday named their lineup for the FIFA Futsal World Cup in Brazil in September.
Coach Victor Waiia said the lineup is set and now waiting confirmation by Solomon Islands Football Federation.

Waiia said he brought in one replacement to strengthen one of the weak areas he saw in the team. Lenson Bisili replaces Alfred Punguika.

He said: “The new inclusion in the team was not a new face. He’s been a regular show-up in futsal.”

The names, subject to Solomon Islands Football Federation confirmation: Elliot Ragomo (Captain), Jack Whetney, Ron Ginio, James Egeta, Lenson Bisili, Jenan Kapu, Micah Lea’alafa, Junior Kogua, Philip Houtarau, Moffat Sikwa’ae, Stanley Puairana,Alfred Lioka Junior, Francis Lafai and Samuel Osifelo.
