The Bilikiki boys have arrived in France and are settling well ahead of their opening match on Thursday.

Team manager Reuben Oimae confirmed that they arrived on Sunday and the boys have recovered from the long flight.

The team had their first training yesterday and will use the remaining days to get the hang of the sand turf.

Mr. Oimae said most of the teams have already arrived in Marseille a couple of days earlier.

Meanwhile, Solomon Islands opening match is on Thursday against Italy at around midnight (local time).
