The New Zealand Under-20 women's football coach says their 2-1 loss to Sweden at the Under 20 world cup in Germany is bitterly disappointing.

The Junior Football Ferns now must win their next two group B games against North Korea and Brazil to ensure they advance to the knockout stages of the tournament.

The Junior Ferns coach Tony Readings says the team is taking the loss hard.

Their next match against North Korea is on Saturday morning.
