SUVA midfielder Jale Dreloa is tipped to captain the Vodafone Fiji team at the Oceania Football Confederation under-20 Championship which starts in Suva on Friday.

Dreloa is the frontrunner for the leadership role having skippered the team at the same age group tournament last year.

Fiji Football Association vice-president and national team director Tarunesh Reddy said the captain and vice-captain would be announced this evening.

Reddy said the two players from New Zealand Altaaf Saheb and Mohammed Khan had settled well.

"The preparations for the tournament have been good so far," he said.

"The players have been combining well. Now their task will be to perform during game time."

The tournament serves as the qualifiers for the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand next year.

Fiji finished second to New Zealand in the tournament last year. The Junior All Whites are not part of the competition this year having secured a direct spot at the U20 World Cup as hosts.
