THE Vodafone Fiji Under-19 football side is tied nil-all at half-time against the Solomon Islands at the Oceania Championship underway in Tahiti.

Fiji did receive a couple of good opportunities in the first spell but failed to capitalise.

A win for either of the side may secure them a spot in the semi-finals of the tournament.

Fiji defeated Vanuatu 3-1 in its first match while Solomon Islands edged New Caledonia 3-2 in its opener.

Meanwhile, in matches played yesterday, New Zealand thrashed Tonga 14-nil Tahiti thumped Papua New Guinea 5-nil.
