“All the players have worked hard in training sessions and as we have the summer international matches, we are confident of having a strong squad. Thus, will pick the selected players to play against a skillful and powerful Fijian side.
“Friday will be a great occasion for the whole squad and for the country. We are in a unique position to be playing in a World Cup on home soil and to have the support of a nation behind the team. That support will be a massive factor and we don’t underestimate its importance.” 2015 Rugby World Cup: England vs Fiji live streaming.
Fiji side knows the significance of home crowd. They wanted to get into the real situation even while practicing for the match, they played a recorded audio tape of the Twickenham crowd to get used to it.
“We had a little bit of a strategy earlier in the campaign in Fiji,” coach John McKee said. “We had a PA system playing crowd noise and the sounds from Twickenham. That was part of our preparation.
Both the sides have taken the practice session to the next level. Well, for Fiji side, they don’t have anything practical to lose as nobody is expecting from them to win this rugby world cup opener match.
“It’s truly an honour to be playing in the World Cup, but the opportunity to play in the opening match against the hosts is truly a great honour,” Fiji vice-captain Sunia Koto said. “It will be remembered in 10 years’ time, we’ll be telling stories in the village about the day we played the opening match in the World Cup.”
