NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 30/09/2016

New Zealand's prospects appear grim at the under-17 women's World Cup after succumbing 5-0 to Mexico in their opening group game in Amman, Jordan.

The Oceania champions had no answer to the speed and skill of the Central Americans, who led 2-0 at halftime and finished with two goals in the final nine minutes.

New Zealand's remaining pool games are against Spain and Jordan.
