The Vodafone Fiji Under-20 football team depart for their Asia Tour today.

This is in preparation for the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand on May 30- June 20.

“This is indeed very important tour since we will be playing teams like Myanmar and Malaysia,” Assistant coach Shalen Lal said.

“We are not promising anything but the results will decide where we stand. We will be putting into practice what we have done in training.”

Team captain Setareki Hughes said the boys were looking forward to the tour.

“The boys have been in camp from three to four months and playing in the Rewa Galaxy Premier League recent weeks,”Hughes said.

“This tour should be a great build up for the team ahead of the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup.”

Vodafone Fiji chief marketing officer Sanjeewa Perera wished our young brigade the very best yesterday.

“Vodafone is proud to be the brand behind the team supporting them to perform at the highest level of soccer,” Parera said.

He said the second leg of the build-up tour would help the team prepare better.

“This sort of exposure at international level will assist the team build confidence and composure.”

The team was hosted to lunch by major sponsor Vodafone in Ba yesterday.
