The Fédération Calédonienne de Football, although created in 1928, did not join FIFA or the OFC until 2004, largely due to their status as a French overseas territory, however they had regularly competed in the OFC Nations Cup and the Pacific Games. After years of mixed results, they emerged as a force in the OFC region after winning the title at the 2007 Pacific Games and then finishing runners-up at the 200 & 2012 OFC Nations Cup. Although they are yet to win a Nations Cup title, they have been Pacific Games champions on 7 occasions, however arguably their greatest achievement was their shock 2-0 victory against New Zealand in the semi-final of the 2012 OFC Nations Cup. New Caledonia have produced several players that have gone onto play professionally in Europe, most recently including Georges Gope-Fenepej, Jekob Jeno and César Zeoula. Former Real Madrid midfielder Christian Karembeu is the most famous footballer to come from New Caledonia, however he played for France at international level.
