The New Zealand women's football team has drawn 1-all with Australia in the second of their friendlies in Canberra.

Sarah Gregorius grabbed the equaliser just before half time.

The Australians then won a penalty shoot-out 4-2.

Coach Tony Readings says they're very happy with that performance and it was another game that they should have won.

The Football Ferns play Japan in Tosu on Thursday.
