Philippines Down Canterbury Invitation Side (NZ)


A day after arriving in New Zealand the Philippines womens Futsal side got to stretch their legs against a Canterbury Womens Invitationalside as part of their build up to the Vikings Futsal Cup.

Canterbury went down 2-0 to the Philippines in an exciting game of Futsal that really could have gone either way. After a slow start Canterbury found their feet and got a feel for their more experienced opposition and had several opportunities to score.

In the end 2 simple defensive errors was the difference between the sides.

The game was a great opportunity for the Philippines to get some match practice in before the start of the Vikings Futsal Cup which will see them take on New Zealand, Northern Australia and Southern Australia August 8-10th.
