Vanuatu finishes in sixth place at OFC Nation’s Cup

Vanuatu Futsal team finished in sixth place at the OFC Nation’s Cup Competition in New Caledonia.

This is after they lost to Fiji 6-4 in the 5th/6th place playoff.

Iosefo Verevou scored the first goal for Fiji with an accurate low drive at the near post from Shahil Dave’s kick-in in the 3rd minute but Vanuatu produced a swift reply courtesy of Rhydley Napau.

Midway through the first period Kevin Donald took advantage of an uncharacteristic defensive error by Fijian skipper Setareki Hughes before Verevou grabbed his second and Anish Khem followed up for the Fijians’ third as the lead seesawed between the two Melanesian rivals.
