The New Zealand women's football team has been beaten 5-0 by Mexico in their final match at the Cyprus Cup tournament in Nicosia.

Canada won the 12-nation event with a 2-1 extra-time win over the Netherlands while New Zealand finished eighth.

Next up for the Ferns is a likely four-game tour of Australia and China in May,
