In Group C, Vanuatu was scheduled to play New Caledonia on September 8 at 2.00pm local time and Samoa on September 11 at 2.00pm local time. However, the Vanuatu Football Federation (VFF) and Papua New Guinea Football Association (PNGFA) were unable to fulfil their respective fixtures

New Caledonia and Samoa will also be awarded 3-0 victories and three points from their abandoned Group C fixtures with Vanuatu.
