American Samoa on a roll with 2-game unbeaten run
Question of the Day
APIA, SAMOA (AP) - Two days after winning for the first time in its history, American Samoa’s national soccer team stretched its unbeaten run to two games.
After Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Tonga, the team earned a 1-1 draw with the Cook Islands on Thursday. Another win against rival Samoa on Saturday will put the U.S. protectorate into the second round of World Cup qualifying in the Oceania region.
American Samoa coach Thomas Rongen, a former Ajax player and veteran MLS coach, says “we made it very hard for ourselves again but we got the result we needed to make the game against Samoa, who I consider the best team here, a meaningful contest.”
