PNG girl in the running Golden Boot

Papua New Guinea striker Belinda Giada currently tops the Golden Boot rankings at the 2016 OFC U-17 Women's Championship underway at Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

The Rising star, who is based in Lae, has been performing very well with the highest number of goals scored in every game.

The Morobean has scored a total of eight goals so far in the tournament, four goals against Vanuatu, two against Cook Islands and another two against Fiji today.

Giada has represented PNG in a number of tournaments including the 2015 Pacific Games and 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China.

She has lived up to expectations with her attacking ability and is a strong contender for the Golden Boot Award.

Her two goals today have secured a semi-final spot in the tournament together with Fiji, New Zealand and New Caledonia.
