OFC U-17 Championship 1993

The fifth edition of the OFC U-17 Championship took place in 1993 and doubled as qualification for the 1993 FIFA U-17 World Championship™ in Japan. The tournament was hosted by New Zealand for the second consecutive edition.

The last four additions saw Australia and New Zealand contend for a spot at the World Championships but in 1993 the Solomon Islands reached the final for the first time. However, the Solomon Islands suffered a 3-0 defeat, as Australia claimed an impressive fifth consecutive OFC U-17 Championship title.

At the 1993 FIFA U-17 World Championship™ in Japan, Australia represented OFC with pride, drawing with Argentina in their opening match, then earning a convincing 5-0 victory against Canada. Despite a 2-0 loss to Nigeria in their final match they still managed to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Australia took Ghana all the way to extra time after the match finished goalless after 90 minutes. However, a 92nd minute goal in extra time from Daniel Aldo, sent Ghana through to the semi-finals with a 1-0 victory against Australia.
