PRE-TOURNAMENT favourites Solomon Islands and New Caledonia will meet today in a match that will decide which team moves on in the OFC U20 Championship title race.

The Solomon Islands have one draw and one loss while New Caledonians have lost both their matches.

Both sides are targeting a win to ensure they remain in the hunt for a berth at the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand next year.

Solomon Islands assistant coach Gideon Omokirio said they would need to win their remaining games if they wanted to be a contender for the title.

"We need to win all of our remaining games — a draw is not good enough anymore," he told

New Caledonia coach Mathew Delcroix said they still had faith.

"We will continue to give our best and will certainly try to beat the Solomon Islands," he told

Meanwhile, Vanuatu is another unbeaten team with a win and a draw and they are also targeting a win over the American Samoans.
