France booked themselves a berth in the quarter-finals as Group C winners with a game to spare after Wendie Renard's early header sealed a 1-0 defeat of Spain.

England's 1-1 draw with Russia in the early game meant the winners of this fixture were assured of top spot, and Les Bleues wasted no time in staking their claim as Renard steered in a Louisa Necib corner after five minutes. Spain caught the eye with their possession play, but Bruno Bini's side were rarely given reason to panic as they left their rivals second in the section on three points.

    The final whistle is blown.
    France book their place in the quarter-finals courtesy of Wendie Renard's first-half header. Bruno Bini's side looked impressive again but were made to work harder than they did against Russia, whom Spain face on Thursday. After early nerves Spain came back into it, and will feel they have enough to beat Russia and guarantee their own last-eight place.
