FIJI under-19 coach Ravinesh Kumar will be working on the set piece play in the final phase of preparations for the Oceania Football Confederation U19 playoffs in Suva this month.

The team arrives back from New Zealand today after a 17-day tour.

Fiji notched four wins before losing twice to the Junior All Whites in the international friendlies.

Kumar expressed satisfaction with the results on the tour.

"We are happy with our preparations and played against the Junior All Whites who were strong," he said.

"We are getting ready for the upcoming championship. There is a little bit to work on like the set piece play."

The winner of the Oceania U19 playoffs will qualify for the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand next year.

New Zealand has automatic entry as hosts.

The playoffs will be held at the ANZ Stadium from May 23-31.
