A thrilling 4-3 win for Samoa over Vanuatu has capped off an exciting day two of the OFC Women’s Olympic Qualifier at Loto-Tonga Centre, as Papua New Guinea also tasted victory to book their spot in next week’s final.
Striker Hazel Peneti celebrates scoring a late winner for Samoa
the day should have belonged to Papua New Guinea after another clinical performance to beat Tonga 2-0, but it was the spirited Samoans who stole the limelight with their come-from-behind victory thanks to hat-trick hero Hazel Peleti.
Samoa and Tonga are now locked on three points with the two Polynesian nations set for a showdown on Monday to determine who will join Papua New Guinea in Wednesday’s final. With a superior goal difference, the hosts will only need a draw to advance.
Vanuatu meanwhile are out of the running after their second straight defeat – a position that looked virtually unimaginable earlier in the day.
