New Zealand and Papua New Guinea have set up a final day showdown to decide the Oceania under-20 womens football championship.

In Thursday's second round matches in Auckland, New Zealand beat Tonga 3-1 and PNG beat Vanuatu 4-nil.

Both teams have six points leading into Saturday's final round however New Zealand's superior goal difference means a draw would be enough for them to qualify for the World Cup in Canada in August, while PNG must win.
