Prince Tahunipue made a sparkling competitive debut for Galaxy FC in the Port Vila Premier League, scoring a crucial goal in his team’s win over Shepherds United last weekend. The 28-year-old full-back, who had previously played in Australia and represented the Solomon Islands national team, was the most significant signing of the season for the Vanuatu football powerhouse.
Tahunipue’s arrival had generated a lot of buzz among Galaxy FC fans, and he did not disappoint in his first outing. The defender showcased his skill and experience on the field, helping his team keep a clean sheet while also venturing forward to score the opening goal of the game.
Galaxy FC’s victory was a much-needed boost for the team, which is currently sitting in second place in the Port Vila Premier League table, behind the defending champions Ifira Black Bird. With Tahunipue in their ranks, Galaxy FC will be hoping to reclaim the league title this season.
Before joining Galaxy FC, Tahunipue had played for the Henderson Eels in the Solomon Islands, where he had established himself as one of the most promising full-backs in the country. He had also represented the Solomon Islands national team in the OFC FIFA World Cup qualifying tournament last year, where his team narrowly missed out on qualification after losing to New Zealand in the decisive match.
With his talent and experience, Tahunipue is likely to be a key player for Galaxy FC this season as they try to overcome their rivals and clinch the Port Vila Premier League title. His impressive debut performance will have given fans plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the team’s prospects for the rest of the season.
