Solomon Islands Punch Ticket to 2020 Futsal World Cup


The Solomon Islands have won the Oceania Futsal Championship and become the first nation to earn their ticket to the 2020 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Lithuania.

It was a thriller in New Caledonia as the Kurukuru came back from a 4-2 deficit, scoring the tying goal with only 12 seconds left on the clock and defeated New Zealand 7-6 in penalties. This is the fourth consecutive World Cup that the Solomon Islands have qualified for. Their best result was in 2012 when they earned their first victory in a FIFA competition with a 4-3 victory over Guatemala.
