New Zealand will meet Tahiti in Wednesday's final of the Oceania Under 17 championships in Auckland, after both sides finished top of their respective groups.

The winner will secure a place at the Under 17 World Cup in Mexico, which starts in June.

In today's final round-robin matches, winless Tonga play New Caledonia while Solomon Islands can confirm a spot in the third place playoff against Vanuatu if they draw or better against Cook Islands.
