USA beats champs, remains in hunt

USA has kept its semifinal hopes alive in the 2022 FANCA Nations World Cup after beating defending champions New Zealand 2-0 in their last round-robin competition at Prince Charles Park in Nadi today.
 
Striker Mohammed Rizwan scored the opener for USA in the 15th minute before Djelaluden Sharityar scored from a direct free kick a minute before half time.
 
New Zealand despite the loss, qualifies for the semifinal while USA is now level with Australia on 4 points with a better goal difference but needs to wait for the outcome of the Fiji vs Canada match.
 
Canada has 2 points and a win over the Fijians will see them book a place in the semifinal against the Kiwis.
