Vanuatu women's national football team
This team represents the women’s side in international sports and falls under the VFF, with its home field being the Port Vila Municipal Stadium. Job Alwin manages the team, which is yet to participate in the FIFA Women's World Cup. However, it has made it to several competitions, such as the 2010 OFC Women’s Championship and the 2003 South Pacific Games football tournament. The team currently ranks 104th in FIFA rankings, having made it to 82nd back in 2004. The team falls under Jean Robert Yelou as head coach with Elodie Samuel as captain. Serah Thompson has the most caps, with Lavinia Taga standing as the top scorer.
The team first played against Tonga at the Ratu Cakobau Park in Fiji in 2003, where the competition took the day. Vanuatu did not lose hope and played against Papua New Guinea five days later in a game that ended in a draw. Their biggest win stands as their game against Kiribati, where they won 11-0 soon after the draw. In this game, Lavinia Taga scored seven goals for the team. The team has done well in its many other events following this win. It has taken part in Pacific Games, where it has played against several nations. Expectations are high that the team will soar even greater heights, despite its short withdrawal period earlier on.
