France scored four times in the first-half as Les Bleues cruised to a 5-0 victory over Mexico in their final group stage game of the Women’s World Cup.

France advanced to the knockout stage of the competition as the best placed team from Group F, while Mexico finished the tournament without a victory for their third straight World Cup.

The Europeans led 1-0 after only 30 seconds behind a goal from Marie-Laure Delie and controlled the actions for much of the remainder of the game.

Eugenie Le Sommer followed up a Jennifer Ruiz own goal with two goals of her own to make it 4-0 before the half.

In the 80th minute, Amadine Henry finished the rout with a stunning shot from distance and guaranteed France a first-place finish in their group.

Les Bleues now await the runner-up in Group E ahead of their Round of 16 match in Montreal.
