“The first 15-20 minutes the players played the soccer which I didn’t want them to play and Nadi was up in the first 20 minutes. Half time I had to do some changes and I found out where was the problem and we rectified that problem and they played very well in the second half.”

Captain Taniela Waqa thanked his players for playing as a team.

“We came here knowing Nadi is going to be tough. Our coach told us everything we need to do on the field and we did it. I salute my team mates.”
