City wins Oceania opener

ARGENTINIAN Emiliano Tade scored twice in Auckland City's 3-0 win against AS Pirae at the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League semi-final in New Zealand yesterday.

AS Pirae from Tahiti defeated Waitakere United 3-1 in the final match at the group stage which enabled Auckland City to secure the semi-final berth as the best runner-up.

Tade scored the first goal in the 36th minute. Portuguese striker Joao Moriera scored the second goal in the 68th minute while Tade scored his double in injury time.

With the win, Auckland City now only needs a draw next week to book a spot in the final.

AS Pirae needs to win by four clear goals to progress further.

Auckland City is the defending champions.

Auckland City's victorious coach Ramon Tribulietx told Oceania football after the game, it was a win — but the hard work was far from over.

"I think we played a very good game, with the ball and without the ball," Tribulietx said.

"We knew they were a very dangerous team, they have some very good players in Vahirua, Raimana Li Fung Kuee and they can capitalise from scraps and transitions so we knew we had to be alert," he says.
