THE Vodafone Fiji National Football team defeated New Caledonia 3-0 in the first round of the International Friendly Match at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Fiji’s striker Samuela Drudru scored both goals in the 36 minute and the 45th minute just before the halftime break and Rusiate Matarerega scoring the final goal in the last minute of play.

Fiji gained control of the first spell but the second half was more of their defense and a mistake from the New Caledonia goal keeper gave the hosts the opportunity to score the final goal.

Fiji will play Mauritius in their next match on Sunday at Lautoka’s Churchill Park.
