Solomon Kurukuru loses warm up match in Sydney
Solomon Islands Football Federation, SIFF, says though Kurukuru lost they could still learn more out of the game.
SIFF says on a freezing cold and rainy day in Sydney, it was always going to be hard for the Kurukuru to find their rhythm.
Despite the loss, coach Victor Wai'ia was happy with the result, saying the boys played very well.
The line-up we used meant that the whole team got game time, which was important in the lead-up to Brazil.
The team will continue to train at the Dural centre and also use the Blacktown gym before leaving for Brazil on Thursday evening.
