Congratulation to the Fiji soccer team for winning the match against the Solomons.

If this match affects the world FIFA ranking, I suggest that in future we invite other neighbouring teams that are ranked at least 10 or 20 position higher than Fiji. Teams like Tahiti, New Caledonia, PNG etc. The Solomon Islands soccer team is ranked 180 which is just one ranking higher than Fiji.
