Two Fiji youth football internationals have been suspended from the sport for three years after failing a drug test for the second time in four months.

Rewa's Martin Nasova and Kini Madigi from Ba have been suspended from all football related activities until 2022 and fined $500 each after testing positive for marijuana while in camp for the national Under 23 trials.

Fiji Football Association chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf told Vinnie Wylie the suspensions are extremely disappointing.
