Fiji under-20 soccer sensation Roy Krishna has been eyed by Waitakere United in New Zealand after sterling performances in consecutive games at the Oceania World Cup play-offs.

The Labasa 18-year-old is the leading goal scorer at the tournament and has so far been one of the most outstanding players in the tournament.

His input has seen Fiji lead the points table with nine points from three matches.

Fiji beat Samoa 7-0, Vanuatu 2-0 and Solomon Islands 3-0 and will face New Zealand on Saturday.

Fiji Football Association senior vice president Mohammed Yusuf says Krishna is an A-class player and clubs have registered interest in him.
