  1. Post update

    Coming up tomorrow...

    It's still all to play for in Group C. Brazil and Australia are battling it out for the runners-up spot and the Brazilians could still top the group but they would need an emphatic victory.

    Italy v Brazil (20:00 BST)

    Jamaica v Australia (20:00 BST)

    Whoever finishes second in that group will play Norway in the last 16. The group winner will go on to face a third place team.

    Here's what each team needs to happen to go through.

    You can also find the match report from France's victory over Nigeria here.

  2. Post update

    If Nigeria do progress, things are not going to get any easier. They will be without Ngozi Ebere and Rita Chikwelu for the next match.

    Every side that qualifies from third will be guaranteed to face a group winner in the last 16. The same format was in place for 2015's tournament, and that saw all four of the sides who progressed from third spot eliminated in the last 16.

    Chris: If we’re going to be that picky on goalkeeper moving slightly in front of her line then is VAR going to ignore the encroachments??!! In any event, the penalty taker put the ball wide so why that’s been retaken I have no idea??!! Bemused

    Babatunde Oke: Two penalty awarded in Norway v South Korea game and the goalkeeper moved but the goal stood anyway.

    Hugh Donnelly: Keeper an inch off the line = penalty to France. Striker 2 yards in the box (and no defenders inside) = fair goal. Are they watching the same game?

  5. 'Harsh, but both decisions were right'

    Nigeria 0-0 France

    Laura Bassett

    Former England defender on BBC Four

    Ultimately tonight both decisions were right. France are walking away with justice being served. In terms of tonight they deserved to win because Nigeria were in the wrong but for the players it is so hard because it is going to take time to coach players to change their training methods and the communication they tell their players.

  6. How the table looks

    FT: Norway 0-1 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. They will take on a third-place team in the next round.

    Norway, who lost 2-1 to France, go through as runners-up and will face the runners-up of Group C (Brazil or Australia).

    Nigeria could still go through as one of the four best third-placed teams, but face an agonising wait.

    Norway 0-1 France

    Laura Bassett

    Former England defender on BBC Four

    The atmosphere has been electric. From that VAR moment the France fans did not stop cheering and clapping. The France players will be relieved about that because they needed VAR to get them through that game.

  8. Post update

    Norway 0-1 France

    Rachel Brown-Finnis

    Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Four

    Heartbreaking for Nigeria. We have had everything tonight. We have had red cards, penalties... it has been magical.

  9. Post update

    FT: Norway 0-1 France

    Nigeria keeper Chiamaka Nnadozie is comforted by her teammates. She looks absolutely gutted.

    Wendie Renard is clapped around the back by her teammates. She kept her cool to slam in the second penalty.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Norway 0-1 France

    A sad ending for Nigeria but there remains slim hopes. France are through to the last 16 with three wins out of three.

    Nigeria react
  11. YELLOW CARD

    Norway 0-1 France

    Rita Chikwelu goes into the book and that means she will now miss the next match through suspension if Nigeria do go through.

    Ngozi Ebere, who was sent off for that penalty decision, will also miss out.

  12. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Right, a chance for Nigeria to whip a cross in from a free-kick on the right.

    But Wendie Renard is there to spoil the day... again. She heads it clear and Onema Grace Geyoro can counter.

    The substitute is then wiped out by Rita Chikwelu.

  13. Norway through to last 16

    It's all over in the other match between Norway and South Korea. Runners-up Norway are through to the last 16 with a 2-1 win.

    South Korea are going home.

  14. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    France are toying with Nigeria here. Passing it from side-to-side and encouraging them to break lines.

    Eventually, Kadidiatou Diani's shot is deflected wide by Onome Ebi.

  15. Get involved #bbcfootball

    John Pierce: With such scrutiny on penalties the balance between the taker and goalkeeper has gone, may as well just give a goal.

    Harrygfooty: Looks rather close, keeper Looked like she moved exactly as the ball is kicked.

    StevedWhittle: Any keeper will tell you that moving forward to save a pen is a natural movement. From my days in goal for footscray lions u14s to david de gea. It’s impossible. Nigeria have been robbed here.

  16. INJURY TIME

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    EIGHT minutes.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Desire Oparanozie hands the captain's armband over to Ngozi Okobi and is replaced by Uchenna Kanu.

  18. Get involved #bbcfootball

    Kevin Hunter Day: Anyone who thinks VAR is only a force for good needs to watch the last 10 minutes of the France Nigeria game. It is simply providing new ways for the game to be unfair.

    Rob Milnes: I'm surprised there has been no mention of how important that goal could be to Scotland's chances of qualifying. They really need Nigeria to lose.

  19. Post update

    Nigeria 0-0 France

    Conor McNamara

    BBC Radio 5 live commentator

    Neutrals will be willing on Nigeria to get a surprise equaliser here. That would have a sense of justice.
