Vanuatu U17 team head to camp

The national U17 team took part in the Port Vila Football U20 competition last year and they have made it to the second round of the competition.
They beat Tafea U20 team 2-0 and smashed As Ambassador 7-0, just before Christmas.
“We thank Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) for choosing Vanuatu to host the competition and we have only one aim, and that is to play smart and win every single game,” Mermer said.
“We know that the competition will be tight, but I think we have the support behind us. At the end of the day it all depends on how our boys perform throughout the competition.”
“We have much respect for countries like New Zealand, Solomon islands, Fiji, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea, because they are carrying the same football development program as Vanuatu,” added Mermer.
Most of the Vanuatu U17 players are part of the academy football program last year and they will represent Vanuatu for the first time in the OFC U17 Competition in April in Luganville Santo.
The Republic of Vanuatu, which is slightly smaller than New Zealand, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea and has a population of almost three hundred thousand, will host one of the best OFC youth competition and thousands of fans in the country, especially people from the Northern part are already looking forward to book their flights to Santo.
Vanuatu Football delegation led by Vanuatu Football Federation President, Lambert Maltock, will visit Santo this weekend to elect a Local Organising Committee (LOC) that will conduct an administration workshop and visit the local business house to support this important youth football competition.
