FIFA U-17 World Cup: Solomons bested by Italy 5-0

The Europeans dominated the game taking 33 shots on goal and enjoying 61 percent of ball possession.

Inter Milan U-18 striker Degnand Ngonto opened the scoring for the Italians in the 24th minute and added a second later in the second half for a brace with his teammates Nicolo Cudrig (AS Monaco), Franco Tongya (Juventus), and Andrea Capone (Hellas Verona) also getting on the scoresheet.

The Solomon Islanders played much better in the second half than in the first, with striker Raphael Leai having a couple of decent stabs at goal.
