The Vodafone Fiji U20 Football team have already started preparations for their first match against Amicale FC in the Oceania Football Confederation President’s Cup on Monday in Auckland, New Zealand.

National team director Tarunesh Reddy said although it would be the toughest tournament they had faced, he was confident they would do their best.

“Team preparations are going as planned and this will be a tough battle but I’m confident they will give Amicale a good run for their money,” Reddy said.

“These boys are going up against senior and experienced teams but this will not be a factor and stop them from doing what they were brought here to do because nothing is impossible.

“They know what is expected of them and I know they will deliver 100 per cent on game day.”

As the Vodafone Fiji U20 team made history qualifying for the 2015 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) U20 World Cup, Reddy said the OFC President’s Cup would be a good platform to test the players’ capabilities.

“This tournament is important for us and important for the players because they will be rubbing shoulders with experienced teams,” said Reddy.

“So this is actually an advantage for us because this will develop the players and prepare them for the FIFA U20 World Cup next year.”

Morale in camp is high and Reddy said the players were now preparing accordingly and were looking forward to the game.

The Vodafone Fiji U20 team will face Amicale FC on Monday at 7.30pm
