Young All Whites crowned Oceania champions

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/02/2017

New Zealand are the Oceania under-17 boys champions after thumping New Caledonia 7-0 in the final in Tahiti.

The Young All Whites were 2-0 up at halftime following goals to Elijah Just and Liberato Cacace.

A Max Mata double pushed them clear before Matthew Conroy, Charles Spragg and Matthew Palmer completed the scoring.

Both finalists had already booked the two slots allocated to Oceania to compete in the 24-nation World Cup in India in October.

New Zealand got there courtesy of a tense 2-1 win over Papua New Guinea on Thursday.
