The New Zealand national football team represents New Zealand in the international football association. The team is controlled by the New Zealand Football Association (NZF), which is currently a member of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC). The official nickname of the team is All Whites. New Zealand is a five-time OFC champion. The team represented New Zealand at the 1982 and 2010 FIFA World Cup ™ tournaments and the 1999, 2003, 2009 and 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup tournaments.

In August 2014, Anthony Hudson was appointed manager of All Whites. Hudson's first game for the national team was a 3-1 defeat by Uzbekistan in September 2014. The result was that All Whites had played "only three games" last year, which was "the least of all countries in the world" "And with" seven months without a match "the All Whites fell to 161 in the FIFA World Ranking. The All Whites won the 2016 OFC Nations Cup and won four games, with the final won by a penalty shoot-out after a 0-0 draw with Papua New Guinea. Only one goal was conceded from a penalty. New Zealand's victory crowned them Oceania champions, making New Zealand the most successful national team in the history of the competition after five tournament victories. They also qualified for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia. The All Whites climbed 54 places in the world rankings in July, finishing 88th in the FIFA World Ranking. This is the highest ranking in three years. The reason for this was the OFC Nations Cup victory, with which they qualified for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017.
After a disappointing tournament at the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2017, in which Russia, Mexico and Portugal took the last place, the national team dropped by 27 to 122 places. In September 2017, New Zealand won the OFC final against the Solomon Islands with a total score of 8-3 to qualify for the intercontinental play-off qualifier against Peru, the fifth-placed nation in qualifying South American games. After Peru had paused in the first leg, it had to accept a 2-0 defeat in the second leg to be excluded from the competition. Peru was the last team to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
