The Nauru national soccer team is an international team from the Republic of Nauru. However it is not a member of the OFC or FIFA, and is therefore not eligible to enter either the World Cup or OFC Nations Cup.

History[edit]

The national team is the most important organ of the Nauru Amateur Soccer Association. NASA was formed in 1973[citation needed] and since then has been inconspicuous outside of the country. The federation is as yet unrecognized by either FIFA or the OFC as an official national soccer federation. There are no soccer stadiums in Nauru; the incomplete sports stadium in Meneng may provide a venue suitable for international matches.

On 2 October 1994 the Nauruan national soccer team played a friendly match in Denigomodu against selection of Solomon Islanders working on Nauru at the time.[1] Nauru won the match 2–1 against them.[2]
