A 2-all draw against the All Whites in Honiara this afternoon was not enough to win through to the next stage of qualifying.

However it was an improved result for the Solomon Bonitos after the 6-1 defeat by New Zealand in Auckland last week.

New Zealand will now play the fifth-best South American team for a spot at next year's world cup in Russia.
