Football targets another overseas player

Reef Peries who has Sri Lankan roots and is currently playing for a club in England has been earmarked to be included into the national football team in the near future.

The Football Federation of Sri Lanka (FFSL) is currently negotiating with Peries to get him down before the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Once his paperwork is completed with Immigration, Peries will make his bid to claim a place in the Sri Lanka team which has hit the dumps internationally.

Peries is just 18 years old and qualifies to play for Sri Lanka through his grandfather.

With FIFA World Cup qualifiers coming up, inclusion of these young lads will give the Sri Lankan team the much needed boost according to FFSL administrators who have expressed confidence that Peries and many other players with Sri Lanka roots will lift the performances of the team at the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
