Fiji claimed their first ever win at a FIFA tournament with a shock 3-0 victory over Honduras at the Under-20 World Cup on Thursday.
Frank Farina’s side, heavy underdogs in Group F, scored three times in the first half at the Christchurch Stadium in New Zealand.
Having gone down 8-1 to Germany in their opener, while Honduras beat Uzbekistan 4-3, Fiji’s win came as a huge surprise.
A defensive error allowed Iosefo Verevou to score in the 14th minute before Saula Waqa scrambled in a second five minutes later.
Fiji got even luckier just before half-time.
A header from a corner deflected off Kevin Alvarez for what was an unfortunate own goal by the Honduran.
Fiji sit third in the group, level on points with Germany and Honduras and with a chance of progressing to the last 16.
