  • Wendie Renard of France missed a penalty that was subsequently retaken

Host France and Norway yesterday won their final group matches to progress to the knockout stage at the ongoing FIFA Women's World Cup in France but hard fighting Super Falcons will have to wait for results elsewhere to know if they would qualify as one of the best losers.

France will play a third-place team on Sunday at Le Havre in the round of 16, and the victor will advance to a quarterfinal against the United States, Sweden or Spain. Eberle was given her second yellow card of the match for the foul, causing Nigeria to finish a player short.

Renard's second attempt was superb, giving the 18-year-old no chance and that proved to be the winning goal of the encounter.

Nigeria's goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie (L) reacts after Honduran referee Melissa Borjas (R) ruled a French penalty be re-hit due to the goalkeeper moving off the goal line during the France 2019 Women's World Cup Group A football match between Nigeria and France, on June 17, 2019, at the Roazhon Park stadium in Rennes, western France.

This is how the table looks at the end of Group A. France top the table with three wins and a +6 goal difference.
