Brazil bound Bilikiki player, Brian Feni, is on his way back to Honiara due to illness.

The SIFF office has confirmed that Feni developed complications when transiting in Auckland, New Zealand and airport paramedics were called in to assist.

Bilikiki team manager, Reuben Oimae, had to stay back to assist Feni while the rest of the team traveled on to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

SIFF General Secretary, Eddie Ngava, says Feni is coping well and should return to Honiara on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Bilikiki will face the might of the World Champions, Brazil, on Friday.
