Tonga suffers at hands of Solomons

Solomon Islands football side thumped Tonga by 3 goals to nil in their first encounter at the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu Saturday.

The Solomon Islands team was too strong for Tonga.

The first goal came from Jerry Tonga.

Tonga’s Team Manager, Fetuu Vea says they will try their best in the next game against New Caledonia.

Vea said football is still a new discipline in Polynesian countries and that explains why there was a big score line against them today.

Head Coach for Solomon Islands, Filipe Vera Arango said he is happy with the performance of the players and their next match will be very difficult because they will play against Fiji.

In the first match of the competition, Fiji defeated Tuvalu 8 goals to nil.

Fiji team is also one of the best teams in the region and they will strive until the end according to their team manager, Christophe Gamel, in an interview with FM 107.
