Team Wellington sight continental crown – FIFA on GBP Sports

Team Wellington are within touching distance of their maiden OFC Champions League title and a spot at the FIFA Club World Cup after a one-sided opening leg of the final on Sunday.

Despite the gloomy conditions in the New Zealand capital, it was perfect afternoon for the home side after a second half onslaught secured a 6-0 win over Lautoka.

The Fijians were still in the contest approaching the hour-mark with Ross Allen’s 16th-minute goal all that separated the teams.

However, Team Wellington rattled in four without reply during a remarkable 14-minute period, which also included a red card for the visitors’ Praneel Naidu.

Jack-Henry Sinclair scored the first of a double with Andrew Bevin and Mario Barcia also netting, before Taylor Schrijvers added extra insurance six minutes from fulltime.

Team Wellington, who have been runners-up for the past three years, ended Auckland City’s seven-year continental reign in the semi-final last month.

The return leg in Lautoka will be played next Sunday with a ticket to UAE 2018 awaiting the victor.
