Diyalowai confident and ready to roll in France
FIJI women’s football rep Sofi Diyalowai will begin the trials with French Ligue 1 teams Reims later today.
Conversing from France, Diyalowai said she was scheduled to start the trials yesterday but because of her long hours of travel, she was advised by club officials to take a rest day.
She says she is confident and ready for the task ahead.
“(I’m) Ready for today. I was supposed to play yesterday and they told me to rest because of the long travel,” Diyalowai said.
She said she knows the task at hand was not easy but she was game.
“I am looking forward to it and am ready to face them and show them all what I have,” she told Fiji Times Online.
Meanwhile, national football coach Christophe Gamel is also in France and is helping Diyalowai in her trials.
She is the first Fijian to trial for a French club.
