Fiji has rocked the defending champions of the FANCA Nations World Cup New Zealand, beating the side 2-0 at Prince Charles Park tonight.

Despite a goalless first half, Fiji was the better team as they had more goal-scoring opportunities in front of a massive crowd.

New Zealand on the other had only looked good on counterattacks, but the host’s defence was the difference.
