Fiji secured their first semi-final place at an Oceania Football Confederation Women’s Nations Cup since 1998 after thrashing Tonga 12-0 in New Caledonia’s capital Nouméa today.
Joining them in the penultimate round are fellow Group B outfit New Zealand, who eased to a 6-0 victory over the Cook Islands.
Both sides have maximum points from their opening two games at the Stade Numa-Daly Magenta and will meet in a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday (November 25) to decide who qualifies as winner and runner-up.
New Zealand currently lead the way by virtue of a slightly superior goal difference; plus-17 to Fiji’s plus-15.
Tonga and Cook Islands will be playing for pride on Sunday.
Luisa Tamanitoakula notched four of Fiji’s 12 goals against Tonga having opened the scoring in the sixth minute.
Cema Nasau and Sofi Diyalowai each grabbed a hat-trick, while Trina Davis bagged a brace.
"It’s a bit mixed [in terms of feelings]," Fiji coach Marika Rodu said afterwards.
"You want to celebrate but at the same time the journey is not the end of it.
"We may have two more games that we really want to focus on - a semi-final and the final if you look at it."
In the evening game, New Zealand had little trouble overcoming the Cook Islands.
Emma Rolston scored her first two international goals in a first-half that also saw Annalie Longo find the net.
The Silver Ferns went onto score another three unanswered goals in the second-half.
Katie Rood struck in the 68th minute before substitutes Sarah Morton and Grace Jale completed the rout in stoppage time.
"It was good to get the win but I honestly thought Cook Islands put on a great display today," New Zealand coach Tom Sermanni said.
“I thought they showed their real spirited determined performance and made life very difficult for us.
"We made a lot of changes from the first game to rest some players and I thought at times we were a little more disjointed than I would like us to be."
Following a rest day tomorrow, the final round of Group A games will take place in Koné on Saturday (November 24).
