Dreloa to lead Fiji U20

Dreloa led the last U20 side which finished second to overall winners New Zealand and the team management believes the experienced defender who is also part of the senior Suva side has what it takes to guide the national side .#He will be assisted by Samuela Nabenia who was named vice captain during the Fiji U20 side’s presentation held at the Fiji Football Association headquarters in Vatuwaqa. #Dreloa says he is confident that this Fiji side could turn the tables to become the first Fijian side to qualify for a FIFA World Cup event. #“It is an honour to captain the Fiji side at the OFC U20 championship,” he said. #“I’m confident that the boys have what it takes to qualify for the World Cup. With NZ not being part of the playoffs it is an ideal opportunity for the Fiji side to excel. The boys are focused and we are looking forward to the first game against American Samoa.” #Fiji FA vice president Yogeshwar Singh who was one of the speakers at the presentation night reminded the players of the task ahead of them. #“Every game needs to be treated like a final. No team is coming here to lose but to win. It is important that we stay focused and complete the task we all have set out to complete,” Singh said. #Fiji plays their opening match of the U20 championship against American Samoa at 2.30pm on Friday. #Vodafone Fiji U20 squad #1.
