Football Ferns miss out on play-off spot in Korea

8:35 am on 24 October 2010

The Australian women's football team have been upset 2-1 by hosts South Korea in the final of the Peace Queen Cup tournament.

New Zealand missed out on a place in the Cup final after a nil-all draw against England forced a drawing of lots to break a three way tie.

All three games in group A of the tournament were goalless draws, meaning no countback could separate New Zealand, England and South Korea - so the hosts faced Australia after their name was revealed in a tense post-match draw.
