5:33 pm on 21 September 2008

New Zealand's Under 20 women footballers have finished their Four Nations World Cup warm-up tournament with a 3-0 win over Mexico in Chile today.

Fifteen- year-old Rosie White scored just before halftime with Grace Vincent and Ria Percival scoring in the second half as New Zealand recorded the tournament's biggest winning margin.

The Junior Football Ferns finished third on four points, three behind the winners Canada with Chile second.

White - who also scored in a 1-1 draw with Canada on Friday - was the tournament's top scorer with two goals.

The tournament is preparation for November's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, with New Zealand drawn to face the hosts Chile, England, and Nigeria in Group A.
