[UNDER-17 WOMEN'S WORLD: Semifinals] France won its first FIFA women's championship when it captured the 2012 Under-17 Women's World Cup with a shootout victory over North Korea in the final before 27,128 fans in Baku, Azerbaijan.

(Click here for video highlights.)

Les Bleuettes had lost to Germany, which fell to Ghana, 1-0, in the third-place game, in the final of the European under-17 championship but prevailed against North Korea in Baku on Saturday, 7-6, after the game ended 1-1.

Lea Declercq had put France ahead in the first half, but North Korea equalized on a late goal by Ri Un Sim, the Golden Shoe winner with eight goals. Ri Un Yong’s miss in the eight round of the shootout was the difference.

France swept the top awards. Defender Griedge Mbock Bathy won the adidas Golden Ball as the tournament's top player, while Romane Bruneau won the adidas Golden Glove as the top keeper.
