CUBA DOWN SOLOMON ISLANDS IN FUTSAL WORLD CUP

Publié le par OFC Website

BRASILIA - It began promisingly enough when Eliot Ragomo gave Solomon Islands Kurukuru the lead mere seconds into its debut match at the FIFA Futsal World Cup - Brazil 2008 - but it was Cuba that eased toward a comfortable 10-2 victory.
The Solomon Islands - the youngest team at these futsal finals in Brazil - looked to be on their way to a special day when Elliot Ragomo opened the scoring inside the first minute. Unfortunately for the Oceania men, their early joy only served to aggravate the Cubans.
Yulier Olivera, Carlos Madrigal, Olivera, Boris Saname and Eduardo Morales all scored for the Cubans to make it 5-1 at the interval. In the 27th minute, the Solomons' defeat was fairly well complete, with Morales scoring two more goals and and Johnnet Martinez adding one of his own.
Morales went on to add another before Mesa made it 10-1 for the men from CONCACAF. In the dying moments, Ragomo added a bit of scant consolation with his second goal of the match for the outgunned Solomon Islands.
Solomon Islands face a daunting match with host nation Brazil in two days time and will take note of the clinical manner Japan were dismantled in the tournament's opening match by 12-1.
