Samoans here to improve Oceania football rankings

DESPITE losing the opening match to the Vodafone Fiji under-20 side, the American Samoans are confident of a better finish in this year's Oceania Football Confederation U20 Championship.

The visitors lost to Fiji 4-0 at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

The side didn't enjoy a good outing in the past tournaments and is looking at this championship to better their records.

Coach Rupeni Luvu said they were still a developing nation and every game they played in the championship was a learning experience for the side.

American Samoa will play Papua New Guinea tomorrow at 5pm and Luvu is confident of a better outing.

"Like other teams, we are here to win but we are still a developing side," the Fijian mentor said.

"I'm happy with the performance. We played well (in the second spell), we took a defensive approach in the game.

"The aim is to better our performance in the upcoming games."
