Solomon women's soccer team suffer thumping from New Zealand in Lae Qualifiers

The Solomon Islands senior soccer side have suffered another straight thrashing under the boots of New Zealand with a 8-0 scoreline today, after Monday's unimpressive 6-1 loss to hosts Papua New Guinea at the Oceania World Cup Qualifiers in Lae.

This second straight defeat in the four team tournament now implies that the Solomons ladies are at the bottom of the table after two games while New Zealand confirmed their place at the top of the table with maximum points after their opening two games. On Monday New Zealand thumped an aspirant Tonga side with a 6-1 margin.

The winner of the three game round-robin tournament will represent Oceania at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in China from September 10-30. New Zealand take on the hosts Papua New Guinea on Friday in a game that could potentially decide the tournament whilst Solomon Islands will face Tonga to determine who will pull the tail.
