Sport: Tiki Toa too strong for England

11:54 am on 29 September 2014

The Tahiti beach soccer team has beaten England 3-2 in Papeete, to complete a clean sweep in their two-match series and mark the one year anniversary of hosting the World Cup in style.

Outgoing Tiki Toa coach Angelo Schirinzi, who led the team to a fourth-placed finish at last year's World Cup, was on hand to receive the perfect send-off before returning to his duties as player-coach with the Swiss national team.

The next World Cup is in Portugal in July, with dates for the Oceania Championship qualifying series still to be confirmed.
