4. Josh Rogerson (left) and Elijah Just (right) with the Oceania Football Confederation tournament trophy. Josh was on the pitch in humid conditions for every minute of the tournament, which doubled as a World Cup qualifying competition. New Zealand beat Samoa 11-0, Solomon Islands 2-1 and Fiji 5-0 in their pool matches, before overcoming Papua New Guinea 2-1 in a tense semi-final. That result gave them automatic qualification to the World Cup, so they were able to take the shackles off for the final. They dominated New Caledonia to win 7-0 to claim the OFC trophy for the sixth consecutive time.
