PARIS, France

The host country for the women’s world cup France has topped the group A chart after a narrow 1-0 win over Nigeria on Monday sealing its place in the knockout stages.

With just a point needed to take first place, France’s Wendie Renard gave them all three from the spot at the second attempt, after Nigeria goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie was judged to have encroached for Renard’s first effort, which hit the post.
