The New Zealand Football Association has confirmed that a second string side will play Fiji in two friendly internationals next month.

Tracy Brady says the All Whites side to tour Fiji will be a mixture of current national and other local based players, and will be named by the end of the week.

The All Whites and Fiji will beusing the games as part of their preparation for the World Cup playoffs in October.

The funds from the matches organised by the Oceania Football Confederation will go towards Solomon Islanders affected by the tsunami that struck the Solomons three months ago.

The first match will be played in Suva on the 10th August.
