PNG leading Samoans 2-0 in first half

Papua New Guinea is leading the Samoans 2-0 in the first half of the OFC Nations Cup semi-final qualifying match at the Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby.

Thirteen minutes into the game, PNG flanker Micheal Foster found an opening to belt a powerful right footy into the goal to lead 1-0.

Samoans fought hard to cross into the PNG territory but faced a strong Komolong-brother combination that held them off the half-way line.

Raymond Gunemba then bagged the second goal for PNG in the 32nd minute with a stunning dribble in front of the goal mouth, avoiding the Samoan opponents before slotting it behind the net for 2-nil.

PNG Kapuls need more goals to be on the safe side to qualify as the next match between Tahiti and New Zealand will determine their fate in average goals scored.
