OFC U-20 Championship 1992

The ninth edition of the OFC U-20 Championship took place in 1992 and doubled as qualification for the intercontinental play-off for the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship™ in Australia. The tournament was held in Papeete, Tahiti and was contested between five nations in a round-robin format.

It was a closely fought group stage with New Zealand prevailing with four wins from four, including a narrow 1-0 victory over hosts Tahiti, and a 2-1 win over Fiji. New Zealand failed to qualify for the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship. They lost four matches in an intercontinental play-off to South Korea, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

As tournament hosts for the second time, Australia qualified for the quarter-finals of the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship with a 2-1 win over Colombia and 3-1 victory over Russia. In the quarterfinals they faced Uruguay, after 90 minutes the match ended 1-1, in extra time a 99th minute goal from Anthony Carbone secured a 2-1 victory and a spot in the semi-finals for a second consecutive year.

In the last four, Australia faced Brazil and despite giving a good account of themselves they went down 2-0 to the eventual champions of the tournament. In the third place playoff Australia took on England and suffered a 2-1 defeat, settling for a second consecutive fourth place finish, equalling the best ever-finish by an OFC member at the competition.
