With four FIFA World Cup™ campaigns behind them, this tiny nation of just 20,000 inhabitants will be looking for a breakthrough showing in their Brazil 2014 campaign. The Oceania Football Confederation’s smallest member association has just one win to their credit, which came against OFC Associate Member Tuvalu. However they have come close several times to claiming another point at this level, having lost only 2-0 against New Zealand in 2001 and 1-0 against Tahiti in 2007. Cook Islands’ Brazil 2014 campaign proved to be one of disappointment as the nation finished bottom of Oceania’s Round One group after two one-goal defeats and a draw against American Samoa.
