Sport: Amicale FC through to OFC President's Cup final

11:04 am on 20 November 2014

Amicale FC have booked their spot in the OFC President's Cup football final after upsetting Bahraini club Busaiteen 2-1 in Auckland on Wednesday.

Australian midfielder Panagiotis Nikas scored the winning goal in the 80th minute to guarantee Amicale top spot in Group B, with two wins from as many matches.

They're the first Vanuatu side to beat a fully professional club and also the first club from the Melanesian country to beat an Asian Football Confederation opponent.

In the earlier encounter, Cayman Islands champions Bodden Town opened their campaign with a goalless draw against Singapore's U-23 team.
