[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] European champion France beat Paraguay, 3-0, to finish as the only team to sweep all three games in group play that ended Wednesday at the Under-20 Women's World Cup in Canada. African champion Nigeria and Asian champion South Korea took the top two spots in Group C.

Faustine Robert scored two goals and Mylaine Tarrieu added the third to lead France's Bleuettes to a 3-0 win over Paraguay. In the other Group C game, Steph Skilton, Megan Lee and Tayla O'Brien scored to give New Zealand to a 3-0 win over Costa Rica and reach the final eight for the first time.

Nigeria rallied to beat England, 2-1, getting second-half goals from Loveth Ayila from 25 yards and Asisat Oshoala from the penalty spot. Oshoala's goal came minutes after Bethany Mead had a chance to put England back ahead but missed her own penalty kick.
