Singapore 4-3 Solomon Islands
Ramli gave Solomon Islands the lead in the 4th minute, and nobody scored for about half of the game until Feni equalized in the 48th minute. Solomon Islands led 2-1 and 3-2 before losing, as Quak scored in the 77th minute to tie it at 3, and Harun scored an 86th minute winner. Singapore is 160th in the FIFA Rankings. Solomon Islands is second in OFC and 139th. It's the first time Solomon Islands played a game in which both teams scored at least 3 since New Zealand beat them 4-3 in the OFC Nations Cup on 10 June 2012, which was 33 games ago. The other times they played a game in which both teams scored at least 3 were a 5-3 win in a friendly at Papua New Guinea on 14 June 2003, a 3-3 draw with Fiji in the South Pacific Games in Tahiti on 24 August 1995, a 4-4 draw with New Hebrides in the South Pacific Games in New Caledonia on 13 December 1966, and a 6-3 win over New Hebrides in the South Pacific Games in Fiji on 30 August 1963. According ELO, the 6-3 win was Solomon Islands' first game, and the 4-4 draw was their fifth game. Today was their 183rd game, so the 6 times that both teams have scored at least 3 goals is 3.3 percent of their games. I looked up New Hebrides, and that is the country now called Vanuatu.
