Several up-and-coming stars have been included in Vanuatu's 24-man squad for the Pacific Games, which kick off later this month in New Caledonia.

19 year olds Yvong August and Kensi Tangis have been included after scoring in the 2-0 friendly win over Solomon Islands in Port Vila last weekend while 17 year-old Jean Kaltack has also been selected after only making his debut in that match.

A trio of youngsters from Vanuatu's Under 20s team, including 16 year-old Selonie Iaruel, have also been included by coach Saby Natonga.
