New Zealand’s Futsal Whites are into the final of the OFC Futsal Cup in Fiji after an impressive 6-1 semi-final win against New Caledonia.

However, the New Zealanders took control in the second spell to comfortably progress to the tournament final against the Solomon Islands who beat the Fiji FA Presidents Five 5-1 in the second semi-final.
