Norway are safely through to the knockout stages of Women's World Cup.

They beat South Korea 2-1 thanks to a penalty in each half.

The result means that South Korea are now eliminated.

Elsewhere, Spain and China played out a goalless draw which ensures that both teams progress to the last 16.

Meanwhile, Germany thrashed South Africa 4-0 to finish top of Group B.

France have finished top of their group as well.

They beat Nigeria 1-0 in an action-packed encounter.

However, the African country can still qualify for the knockout round as one of the best third-placed teams.
