2006 FIFA World Cup qualification (CONMEBOL-OFC play-off)

The 2006 FIFA World Cup OFC-CONMEBOL qualification play-off was a two-legged home-and-away tie between the winners of the Oceania qualifying tournament, Australia, and the fifth-placed team from the South American qualifying tournament, Uruguay. The tie was played on November 12, 2005 and November 16, 2005 in Montevideo and Sydney respectively. With the home team winning 1-0 in both matches, the aggregate score was tied 1-1, and the play-off was decided by a penalty shootout, which Australia won 4-2 in order to qualify for the FIFA World Cup for the first time since the 1974 tournament.


This pairing was the same as the pairing for the 2002 OFC-CONMEBOL playoff, which Uruguay won 3-1 on aggregate. The draw for determining the order of the home and away legs was made at a FIFA congress on September 10, 2005.
