[UNDER-20 WORLD CUP] Favorite Spain came back from a goal down to beat Mexico, 2-1, and knock the last Concacaf team out of the Under-20 World Cup. France knocked out host Turkey, 4-1, with a dominating performance. Uzbekistan and Uruguay also advanced on Tuesday.

Mexico, which recovered from losing its first two games to reach the knockout stage with a 4-1 win over Mali, led on Arturo Gonzalez's goal in the second minute and looked to be headed to victory when Derik equalized in the 74th minute and Real Madrid youngster Jese scored the winner, joining Juan Roman Riquelme, Adriano, Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona -- quite a quartet -- as the only players score in four straight games at the World Cup.

-- France for goals from Geoffrey Kondogbia, Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, Yaya Sanogo and Jordan Veretout to build up a 4-0 lead on the Turks, who got a consolation goal from Sinan Bakis.

-- Second-half penalty kicks by Igor Sergeev and Sardor Rakhmanov gave Uzbekistan a 3-1 win over Greece, which had won its group in its first appearance at the Under-20 World Cup.

-- Two goals from Nicolas Lopez in the second half gave Uruguay a 2-1 win over 10-man Nigeria.
