FIJI Football Association is hoping to appoint former Socceroos Frank Farina as the technical adviser of the Vodafone Fiji under-20 team.
Farina, who played and coached the Australian national football side, arrived into the country earlier this week.
He was present at the Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-finals at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori yesterday.
Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said Farina was yet to confirm his availability but they were confident he would accept the job.
"New Zealand is also after him but we see no problem in him accepting the Fiji football job," Patel said.
"OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) has given us assistance for a coach to take us to the World Cup. OFC is fully paying for the coach.
"Frank was the candidate we chose and he is here since Tuesday to see Fiji football before making his decision."
Patel said if Farina agreed to take up the post, he would be solely responsible of the Fiji U20 team.
He said coach Ravinesh Kumar was aware of their plan and was pleased to have the support of Farina.
Fiji qualified for the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup after winning the OFC U20 Championship in Suva.
The team will become the first national side to play in FIFA World Cup.
