Tahiti will be hoping for some vocal hometown support as it plays host to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

Starting on September 18, a total of 16 teams will take to the sand to show off their skills, score some goals and try to get their hands on the World Cup trophy.

This is Tahiti's second time playing in the top competition while fellow Oceania team, the Solomon Islands, will be out to make it through the group stage for the first time in five attempts.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Speaker: Paul Toohey, from the Oceania Football Confederation
