Raimoana Bennett scored the winning goal in the semi-final played in the Bahamas.

The victory of the Tiki Toa gives them a second chance at the world title after losing to hosts Portugal two years ago.

The final will be against Brazil.

The Tahiti beach soccer team is ranked 6th in the world and made at least the semis in the last three world cups.
