Navua tried hard to stop the firepower of Suva’s attack at ANZ Stadium, but unfortunately for them their efforts were not enough to avoid a defeat against the current national champions of Fiji. Both sides played their first match at the last tournament of the year in Fiji as Suva jumps to the top of the group with this important victory.
Suva’s win started to be constructed thanks to a goal of Christopher Wasasala at the 12th of play. Navua managed to bounce back at the 27th minute of play with a goal of the veteran Alfred Ali after a Monit Chand set piece. Suva proved too strong for Navua – still in the first half, the wonderful moment of Sairusi Nalaubu continued as he put his team in front again at the 34th minute.
Suva’s party at the second half continued – Nalaubu netted his second goal of the day and the third of the Capital City Boys. The experienced Meli Codro scored the last goal of the match at the 76th minute of play to confirm his team victory by 4-1 against the Navuans.
On the next Wednesday, both sides continue their way at the 2020 Fiji FACT: Navua will take on Lautoka while Nadi will be the opponents of the current national champions Suva. The game will be played in Labasa at Subrail Park.
