Solomon U-20 Mamula pips New Caledonia 1-0

The Solomon Islands Under 20 Mamula side beat a seemingly strong New Caledonian outfit 1-0 yesterday in the OFC U-20 Qualifiers in New Zealand.

Yesterday's win was Solomons first after a 1-1 draw with hosts, New Zealand on Friday. New Caledonia have also beaten Tahiti 2-1 on Friday.

Seven Pacific nations, New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tahiti and Solomon islands are competing in the OFC round robin tournament. The winner will gain direct entry into the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada from June to July.

In the first match yesterday, Tahiti scraped through to beat Samoa by three goals to one. In the last match, Fiji maintained their winning record to overcome Vanuatu 2-0 and leading the table.

Solomon Islands will face Fiji tomorrow in its third match of the tournament, and we wish them well.
