The Junior Bula boys have completed their second ever appearance at a FIFA U-20 World Cup with a heavy 9-0 loss to Ecuador in Santiago Del Estero in Argentina.

It follows a 4-0 defeat by Slovakia and a 3-0 loss to the USA.

The South Americans were a class above Robert Mimms team producing nearly 40 shots on goal in the match.

However the young Fijian side never gave up and looked to press forward at every opportunity. It was when they turned over possession, they often found themselves caught short defensively.
