France benefit from late penalty
 Women's Football World Cup News - 18 Jun 2019
 
France gave something of a nervous display as they won 1-0 against Nigeria in Rennes to finish top of Group A with a 100% record.
 
Already assured of going through, France missed a string of chances during the game until VAR once again reared its head and played a huge part in the goal which gave them a third straight win, and leaves Nigeria waiting on their future in the tournament.
 
In front of a partisan crowd, France - who surprisingly omitted Eugenie Le Sommer from their starting line up - could not get through a well drilled Nigerian defence and did not manage an attempt on target until midway through the second half.
 
However, as their pressure increased with Amandine Henry and Gaetene Thiney pushing on in midfield, they were handed a chance to open the scoring when VAR ruled that Vivianne Asseyi had been fouled in the area and a penalty was awarded. Wendie Renard stepped up and her shot came back off the post, however the video referee intervened once again and stated that Nigerian goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie had moved off her line. Therefore, Renard had a second chance to score and this time she made no mistake, slotting home for the only goal of the game.
 
Norway also safely made it through to the last sixteen with a 2-1 win against South Korea in Reims.
 
Needing a win to make absolutely sure, any early Norwegian nerves were settled when Caroline Hansen gave them the lead from the penalty spot after Cho So-Hyun had been adjudged to have brought down Maria Thorisdottir in the area.
 
Six minutes into the second half, Hansen herself was fouled in the box and was not able to take Norway's second penalty, Isabell Herlovsen this time stroking home from the spot.
 
South Korea did not give up and grabbed themselves a deserved consolation with twelve minutes remaining, when a clever backheel by Lee Geum-Mim set up Yeo Min-Ji who, despite being tugged back by Maren Mjelde, was able to slide the ball in from six yards.
