After a convincing win in game two, Team Wellington are full of confidence but weary of their third and final match in the group stages as they face the host side in Erakor Golden Star on their home turf on Friday evening.
It is expected to see a full crowd at Korman Stadium as the passionate fans flock to support their local side, giving Erakor that home advantage edge.
Team Wellington enjoyed the morning off from their football commitments following their win over Kiwi FC to spend some time in the community at Central School, Port Vila on Wednesday.
On arrival, the Wellington side was greeted by the school’s Deputy Principal who introduced the team to two very excited classrooms that would have a slightly different PE class that day.
