[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] European champion France and African champion Nigeria joined Germany and North Korea in the final four of the Under-20 Women's World Cup with wins on Sunday. All four teams have previously advanced to the semifinals.

Quarterfinals:
SATURDAY:
USA 1 North Korea 1
(North Korea wins 3-1 on penalty kicks)
Canada 0 Germany 2
SUNDAY:
France 0 South Korea 0
(France wins 4-3 on penalty kicks)
Nigeria 4 New Zealand 1

France dominated but needed penalty kicks to dispose of Asian champion South Korea, 4-3, in a shootout after their game ended 0-0.

Nigeria got two goals apiece from Asisat Oshoala and Uchechi Sunday to beat New Zealand, 4-1. The Super Falconets join Germany as holdovers from the semifinals two years ago.

Germany won the title in 2004 and 2010, and North Kora won in 2006. The USA won the other three titles.
