FC Morobe Wawens have been preparing for the past two months and are determined to make their debut felt at the OFC Champions League in Fiji next month.
Wawens are one of the two teams that will be representing Papua New Guinea at the OFC Champions League when it gets underway in Fiji for Group B while PNG champion club Toti City FC is in Group A.
Wawens will be going up against the host Lautoka FC (Fiji), AS Central Sport (Tahiti) and Henderson Eels (Solomon Island) while Toti City FC will face off AS Tefana (Tahiti), Malampa Revivors (Vanuatu) and host Henghene Sport in New Caledonia.
Morobe Wawens players are all intact with the inclusion of three Nigerian players however club President Peter Seske said the three players are awaiting their visa confirmations to travel to PNG to team up the club in Lae for 2019 National Soccer League and also to boost their maiden OFC campaign in Lautoka, Fiji.
“We have also a Brazilian and an Australian player showing interest but may join the club later during the year,” said Seske.
“However we have faith in our own local players who we believe will step up for the OFC campaign.”
The club will be making its debut entry in the OFC Champions League and are looking forward to lift their performance when the tournament gets underway in Fiji next month.
