Direct entry for Oceania

Madrid: Football’s world governing body Fifa has decided to grant Oceania a direct qualification place for the 2006 World Cup. “Oceania will have a direct qualification place for the 2006 World Cup,” a Fifa spokesman said on Tuesday.

Before past finals the winners of the Oceania qualification group have had to play off to reach the tournament proper.

In yet another development, Urs Linsi has been appointed full-time general secretary of Fifa.
