Suva beats Auckland All Stars, tops pool

Suva has topped Pool B of the 2016 Pacific Cup after beating Auckland All Stars 1-0 in its final pool match at Prince Charles Park in Nadi today.

Suva and USA All Stars finish pool play with 9 points each but Suva tops the pool due to better goal difference of +4 while USA had a goal difference of 0.

Suva will feature in the second semifinal at 11.45am tomorrow while USA All Stars will play in the first semifinal at 10.30am.
