American Samoa never qualified for a FIFA Women's World Cup, but entered the OFC Women's Nations Cup once, in the 1998 edition. The country also participated twice in the Pacific Games women's football tournament. Due to its poor results, American Samoa can be considerated the worst team in the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC).

OverviewEdit

American Samoa's first international occurred in October 1998, when they faced Australia, for the 1998 OFC Women's Championship.[4] The team was defeated 21–0 (with 7–0 in the half-time). Papua New Guinea, its second rival, also thrashed them, with a 9–0.

The team remained inactive until 2007, when they entered the Pacific Games football tournament, held in Samoa during August–September 2007. American Samoa finished last on the Group A, and scored its first (and only) goal, against the Cook Islands.[5]

They didn't saw any improvement for the 2011 Pacific Games, where the team lost by thrashing defeats, like 8–0 with the Papuan team and 7–0 with the hosts. This was American Samoa's last participation in an international competition to the date.

As of September 1, 2017, American Samoa is on the 119th position (unranked) of the FIFA Women's World Ranking.
