6:00 pm on 22 February 2014

New Zealand has won the Oceania under-20 women's football tournament in Mangere, beating Papua New Guinea 3-nil in the decider.

Belinda van Noorden scored after just 10 minutes, Jasmine Pereira scored with 5 minutes to play and there was an own goal just before the final whistle.

The win means New Zealand qualifies for the Fifa under 20 World Cup in Canada in August.
