Qatar 2022: the Tahitian team qualified for the semi-final

 After Vanuatu, it is the turn of the Cook Islands selection to be affected by Covid-19. The two teams are forced to leave the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 OFC Qualifier which benefits the selections of Tahiti and the Solomon Islands which are automatically qualified for the semi-finals.

Bis repeated. After winning their first match against Vanuatu on green carpet due to Covid-19 in the Vanuatu selection, the Tahiti team has just learned that they will not be playing their match against the Cook Islands scheduled for Sunday either because of positive cases among Cookian players. These numerous positive cases in the selections of Cook and Vanuatu force these two teams to leave the qualifying tournament for the World Cup, thus allowing Tahiti and Salomon to qualify for the semi-finals. It is therefore without playing a single match that the Tahitian selection learned this afternoon of their qualification for the final stages of the tournament which will take place from Sunday March 27th. It remains to be seen who will finish at the top of group A. To find out, we will have to wait for the meeting scheduled for March 24 between the only two teams still in contention in this group, Tahiti and the Solomon Islands. The match will be broadcast live Thursday from 3:55 a.m. (Tahiti time) live on TNTV. In the other group, it is currently the teams of New Zealand and Fiji who occupy the lead after winning their first match, respectively against Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia.
