How New Zealand and the Solomon Islands came to the final
New Zealand beat Papua New Guinea 1-0, Fiji 4-0, New Caledonia 7-1 and Tahiti 1-1 in the semifinals of the Dine B division in Doha.
Meanwhile, the Solomon Islands only played in Group A against Tahiti because Vanuatu and the Cook Islands did not go to Qatar due to the Covit-19, while they beat Papua New Guinea 3-2 in the semifinals.
The New Zealand team expects its third presence at the World Cup after playing in Spain in 1982 (losing to Brazil, Scotland and the Soviet Union) and South Africa in 2010 (drawing all three matches against Paraguay, Slovakia and Italy). The Solomon Islands, home to only 65,000 people, have never played in a World Cup.
