Solomon Islands have secured a 2-0 win over tournament debutants Netherlands in a record-equalling low-scoring match at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

The record for the lowest scoreline at the tournament was set by a 2-0 win for Argentina over Spain in 2008, and later equalled by a 1-1 draw between Ukraine and Mexico at Ravenna 2011.

In this latest low-scoring encounter, the first two periods remained goalless before Joe Luwi scored for the Solomons in their first match at a FIFA tournament on Oceania soil.

The first period had included several narrow misses, with Netherlands captain Patrick Ax clipping the crossbar with a snap-shot, while Solomon Islands had an effort cleared off the line.

In the second third, Netherlands? wing Charlie Van Den Ouweland struck the crossbar with a sweetly struck volley but the scoreline remained blank - the first time the tournament witnessed two consecutive scoreless periods.

A goal was starting to look unlikely until Solomon Islands? wing Luwi finally broke the deadlock early in the second half. Even his goal had an ounce of luck, bouncing over the arms of diving Dutch goalkeeper Frank Van Der Geerst.

Nicholas Muri then made it 2-0 for the Solomons, securing the points, with a glancing header with three minutes remaining.
