The Fiji Under 23 football team preparing for a tour of Australia this weekend has been boosted with the inclusion of three overseas based players.

Osea Vakataleasau, Krishneel Maharaj and Shivan Samy were named in the 23 member team for the tour yesterday by national coach Juan Carlos Buzzetti.

Fiji online says the group will be out to impress the national selectors ahead of the final naming of the team for the Olympic qualifiers in March.

The team flies out to Australia on Sunday morning and will play four build up games against top clubs in Brisbane.
