Young Jean Kaltak (11) inspired VFF Academy to shrug off their sluggish start to the season as they beat new Premier comer Ifira Black Bird 2-0 at the Port Vila Stadium last Saturday.
Superb Kaltak struck Academy opener out of nothing in the first half and score the second goal in the second half to seal the victory for the young stars.
Academy Head coach Moise Poida was full of praise for Kaltak after the match and said he believed VFF recent decision to make the Erakor young boy to be part of the academy is not a mistake and had breathed new life into his game plan.
Poida added: ". He is only 17 years and he is an important player and he can improve as top Vanuatu football striker in the future if he thinks very seriously with his football career. "I'm very happy for him because at this moment he probably isn't at 100% of his form. Maybe his two goals can help him and it is fantastic he got both of them today."
"I had confidence in my boys and I told them before the match we could win. Ifira Black Bird are very strong and well organized team and knows how to win the ball and keep possession. That's why our victory is so precious and we are happy that we have 3 points in our first match", he told Vanuafoot.
Vanuatu coach, Moise Poida said that they would look forward to more challenging matches against the Premier Clubs in Port Vila. He also acknowledges that the matches against the young stars will assist them in their preparation for Oceania Football Confederation U 20 tournament in New Zealand next year 2011.
Academy next match is against Tafea FC this Saturday at Port Vila Stadium.
