Team Wellington defeats Lautoka to win OCL book Club World Cup spot

Football



Team Wellington will compete at the FIFA Club World Cup after dispatching Lautoka in the two-leg OFC Champions League final.

The Kiwi outfit won the second leg 4-3 in Fiji on Sunday, a week after all-but deciding the two-leg tie with a 6-0 victory in Wellington.

Croatian midfielder Mario Ilich scored twice in the first half at Churchill Park in Lautoka for Team Wellington to ensure there would be no surprises.

The game opened up after the break, with Lautoka adding some respectability to the scoreboard.

Team Wellington will be Oceania’s representatives at the FIFA CWC in the United Arab Emirates in December.

Auckland City FC have been Oceania’s participant in the annual event the past seven years but were ousted in the semifinals by their Wellington rivals.
