Fiji thrashed by Tahiti
February 10, 2016 5:19 pm
The Vodafone Fiji side went down to Tahiti 9-1 in their third match at the OFC Futsal Championships in Suva last night.
It was another disappointing performance from the Intiaz Khan coached side who trailed 3-nil at the break.
Captain Meera Saheb scored the only goal for the Fijians late in the second spell but it wasn’t enough as the Tahitians put in another six goals.
Fiji’s reserve goal keeper Suraj Chand was red carded in the second half for handling the ball outside the penalty box.
This was Fiji’s third loss in the tournament after going down to New Caledonia 5-1 and Vanuatu 5-2 earlier on.
In other results from last night, Solomon Islands defeated New Zealand 4-1 in an entertaining match while Vanuatu beat New Caledonia 6-3.
There’s a rest day today as tournament resumes tomorrow with Tahiti playing New Caledonia at 3pm, Solomon Islands takes on Vanuatu at 5.30pm while Fiji plays New Zealand at 8pm.
