Tahiti’s national team returned to the field yesterday – 10th March – in the second preparatory friendly for World Cup qualifiers after losing to Cognac by 4-3.
Still on French soil the Toa Aito drew with the national team of Occitania – a CONIFA member – in 0-0. Again Samuel Garcia changed the whole team at half-time. Players like Eddy Kaspard and François Hapipi were starters in this match after having been substitutes in the defeat to Cognac.
They should travel to Qatar Friday and play their first match against Vanuatu on March 17.
