Slefendorfas Hopeful for a Place in National Team

Melbourne-based Striker, George Slefendorfas, is hopeful of a spot in the senior men’s national team, after being named in the train-on squad for PNG’s world-cup-qualifying campaign.

Having played football from an early age, Slefendorfas has been quite content with his career to date, and the chance to continue playing at a high level has been a motivating factor for him.

He is of Lithuanian descent with a Papua New Guinean mother, George Slefendorfas is now enjoying his second stint with the national team, having trained under previous coach, Wynton Rufer and current head of the squad, Flemming Serritslev.

Watching the country’s performance during the OFC Nations Cup, where hosts PNG would make their first ever final appearance was an inspiring moment for him.

Tahiti on the 23rd of March will be an important match for Papua New Guinea, and, Slefendorfas believes that while their opponents deserve respect, the Hosts have nothing to fear as well.

The 29-year-old striker is hopeful of a spot in National Coach Flemming Serritslev’s final 23-man-squad, set to be announced in mid-February, and says that it would be an honour, and an opportunity which he would grab with both hands.
