New Zealand have qualified for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Trinidad & Tobago 2010 in emphatic fashion by winning all three Oceania qualification matches without conceding a goal.

The New Zealanders needed just a point in their final match against Tonga to ensure their ticket to the September tournament. The result proved never to be in doubt with the Kiwis scoring nine unanswered goals in each half for an 18-0 scoreline.

Hannah Wong netted six goals to sneak the golden boot trophy ahead of team-mate Holly Paterson, while Brittany Dudley Smith blazed a first half hat-trick and Ashleigh Ward also bagged a triple.

In the earlier match Solomon Islands scored a last minute winner to defeat Papua New Guinea 1-0 and claim second spot.

New Zealand join Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea DPR, Korea Republic, and hosts Trinidad and Tobago as nations to compete at the 16-team tournament to be played 5-25 September.

New Zealand hosted the inaugural edition of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2008.
