Oceania Football Confederation

Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) launched its Football for Life initiative this month, with Fiji hosting a New Zealand XI in two charity football matches to help raise funds for the victims of the Gizo tsunami in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands. The matches, scheduled for 10 August in Suva and 12 August in Lautoka, were expected to be sold out, with FIFA Ambassador Christian Karembeu in attendance to help with fund-raising activities. The New Zealand XI, coached by former Glasgow Celtic and Scotland goalkeeper Jonathan Gould, was comprised of club-based players with only a smattering of international experience.
