FIJI Football Association (Fiji FA) president Rajesh Patel has confirmed Fiji is negotiating for an international friendly match with the Qatar football team later in the year.

Patel said Fiji coach Christophe Gamel was away overseas looking for possible international friendly matches.

"Christophe was in Qatar and it would be good with the other neighbouring countries," he said.

"We can tour three countries and then come back and that is what we are looking forward to for this year."

Fiji is ranked 168 in the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) ranking which was released last month.

Fiji had played 13 international matches last year under coach Gamel including the Pacific Mini Games, FIFA World Cup qualifying matches, and international friendly matches.

"We have played European team Estonia and we are planning to play another European team in the friendly match windows," Patel said.

"Estonia has invited us for a match and told us that they would help us secure a match with another team."
