Champs out, Australia marches into final

A new champion will be crowned in the 2016 FANCA World Cup at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park tomorrow after reigning champion New Zealand failed to make the last four after round-robin competition.

The Kiwis bowed out after losing their all-important match 3-0 to host Fiji yesterday.

Australia has booked its spot in the final after ending its final round-robin match with a 0-0 draw against host Fiji.

Australia topped the competition with 8 points with 2-1 wins over USA and Canada and goal-less draws against Fiji and New Zealand.

Fiji and Canada will play in a semi-final playoff match later tonight to determine the second team in the final.

The grand finale of the 2016 Digicel FANCA World Cup will be played at 3pm tomorrow.
