Fiji football captain and Wellington Phoenix striker Roy Krishna has been granted New Zealand citizenship.
Krishna has been based in New Zealand for 10 years, playing at Auckland domestic club level before joining the Wellington Phoenix in 2014.
He has gone on to score a club record 34 goals in 101 appearances.
The Phoenix have long-hoped Krishna’s status would change, allowing Coach Mark Rudan to fill an additional visa player spot.
