THE national under-18 girls team has almost qualified for the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) that will be held in Nanjing, China in August.

They beat hosts Vanuatu 5-1 in their second match of the Youth Olympic Games qualification tournament in Port Vila.

After going down 0-12 to New Zealand earlier in the day, the Lala Ravatu-captained side bounced back to edge closer to fulfilling their promise.

Ravatu had promised to coach Tai Smith and Fiji that they would definitely qualify for the YOG.

She scored two goals in their win over Vanuatu.

Meanwhile, the boys side lost their first match 0-17 to New Zealand.

The finals will be held tomorrow.
