Football - Oceania Nations Cup

International football in Oceania fights a constant battle for acceptance as a major happening in a region dominated by other sports. The major political and economic powers - Australia and New Zealand - made the Nations Cup their own, faced with limited opposition from the tiny island states of the Pacific. 
When Australia left the Confederation in the early 21st century, the Kiwis were set to turn this duopoly into a monopoly but Tahiti's win in 2012 proved that upsets can happen.
