The Vodafone Fiji football side opened its Pacific Mini

Games campaign with a 8-nil victory over Tuvalu

as the football competition in Vanuatu got underway

on Saturday.

Christopher Wasasala opened the scoring for Fiji in the

the second minute of the match in what would be the first

of four goals for the striker on Day 1.

Former Fiji U-20 striker Saula Waqa secured a hat-trick,

while a goal to Rusiate Matarerega rounded out the goal

scoring. Our women footballers also started the tournament

on a winning note thumping Tonga 5-nil in their

opening match.

Fiji led 4-nil at half-time.

The win has put Fiji as a solid contender for the gold medal

as the other two teams taking part include Vanuatu and

Solomon Islands. The women’s side plays hosts Vanuatu

in their next match at 9 tonight while the men’s team plays

Vanuatu at 2pm on Saturday.

The men’s side last played in the final of the Pacific Mini

Games in 1993 where they lost 3-nil to Tahiti.

This is the first time our women footballers are taking

part in the competition.
