After days of travelling, the players can finally stretch
their legs and take to the field… …as it’s now time for the squad to get their first taste of
training in the Netherlands. For the first session, they’ve come to local club VOAB,
where they can adjust themselves back to… …football under the stewardship of Wim Rijsbergen and
his assistant, Jan van Deinsen. Rijsbergen is still waiting for more players to join the
squad, as those who play outside… ….the Solomon Islands are still yet to land in Holland.
Just relax and do your exercises. But for the names he already has, this is a great
opportunity to bond, while using the new facilities. The aim is to loosen up with some nice simple activities,
with plenty of fun and encouragement from their coach. It’s a strong start, but the players must still get used to
playing football in a different climate. Tomorrow, new members of the squad are scheduled
to arrive. Then, the full preparations can begin.
