Tonga going for broke at OFC event

These were the words of Tonga under-17 national football coach Lui Muavesi as the side wrapped up preparations yesterday ahead of the OFC Under-17 Championship which begins today.

Muavesi, who is originally from Rakiraki, has been teaching the Tongan language in Tonga for 20 years now.

He played for Suva in the late 1980s and was also a gold medallist for Fiji in athletics. He competed in the 800 metres and 4×400 metres events.

The soft-spoken coach said preparation had been good for his team.
