The 2020 Inter-District Championship’s opening day brought lots of excitement to Fijian football. All four matches in Premier Division Championship were tough and the final scores prove it. While Ba, Lautoka, Nadi and Rewa collected one point each, Nasinu and Navua spiced up the first day of the tournament by surprising their opponents.
Nasinu faced hosts Suva in the first game of the day to throw cold water in local fans as Solomon Islands’ forward Marlon Nonone opened the scoreboard for Nasinu in the first half. Suva worked hard in order to equalize but it was not enough and they lost by 1-0.
Currently living a bad moment in the season, Labasa fans were excited about the possibility of winning the Inter-District Championship for the second straight year. However the Babasiga Lions were surprised by Navua that grabbed three points by beating their opponents by 1-0 with a goal scored by veteran Apisai Smith – “We were too lazy […] We really need to step up on our finishing,” said Labasa’s head coach Ronil Lal to FBC News after the match.
Nasinu and Navua are currently leading their groups in the tournament with three points each. You can check more information about 2020 IDC by clicking here.
