The match kicks off

1' A large crowd has gathered here to watch the home side today and they will be hoping for a performance similar to New Caledonia's opening 5-0 win over Vanuatu

4' Cesar Lolohea has New Caledonia's first chance when a neat interchange allows him to shot from near the byline but he blasts his effort over

8' Guam were humbled 7-0 by Solomon Islands in their first match but have begun this game well and appear to be in a determined frame of mind

11' Most of the play is taking place amongst Guam's back four as they look to keep possession and New Caledonia seem content to let them have it

12' New Caledonia nearly go in front though when Lolohea hits the bar

12' GOAL!!! New Caledonia 1 - Guam 0: The home side does go ahead this time when Iamel Kabeu breaks down the right and squares for Bertrand Kai, who makes no mistake with his finish

17' Kai crosses for Lolohea but giant Guam goalkeeper Brett Maluwelmeng fists the ball away

18' Patrick Qaeze does well down the left for New Caledonia to hold off several challenges and shoot but Maluwelmeng saves well

20' Kabeu gets in behind the Guam defence but is called back for offside

21' Marius Bako unleashes a thunder bolt from 25 yards that smashes against the Guam bar

22' Guam player Andre Gadia is injured and play is held up while he receives treatment

23' SUBSTITUTION: Gadia does not recover and is replaced by Christian Schweizer for Guam

25' Qaeze shows good skill and determination to make room for a shot but drags his effort wide of the Guam goal

26' GOAL!!! New Caledonia 2 - Guam 0: Bertrand Kai has his and New Caledonia's second of the afternoon when he lobs a bouncing pass over the advancing Maluwelmeng

32' New Caledonia are enjoying the lion's share of possession but Guam are well organised in defence and are making it hard for them to create clear-cut chances

39' Maluwelmeng comes off his line to sweep up a New Caledonia through ball but doesn't complete the job and defender Edward Calvo has to clear

40' GOAL!!! New Caledonia 3 - Guam 0: Kai earns a first-half hat-trick when he nets an Iamel Kabeu cross

43' Kai almost has his fourth win he pounces on a fumble from Maluwelmeng but stabs his effort wide

44' Guam has spent almost the entirety of this half defending and are yet to create anything of note at the other end

44' Kai has another chance to increase his tally but fires wide

45' Two minutes of injury time will be played

The first half comes to an end
