France Knocked Out By Costa Rica, Ecuador Beat Russia In U17 WC

A round-up of Thursday's action, featuring Costa Rica and Ecuador, from the FIFA U17 World Cup.

France 0-0 Costa Rica (Costa Rica Won On Penalties)

Costa Rica are into the quarter-finals after a penalty shootout win over France in Puerto Montt.

The Central Americans won 5-3 on spot-kicks to reach the quarters, where they will now face Belgium, for the first time in 10 years.

Russia 1-4 Ecuador

Ecuador thrashed Russia 4-1 in an entertaining Round of 16 clash to set up a quarter-final with Mexico in Coquimbo on Monday.

Striker Jhon Pereira was the star of the match, opening the scoring and grabbing another in the second half with remarkably similar breakaway goals. Russia had a flicker of hope after they equalised in the first half, but Ecuador again took the lead, this time through Washington Corozo. Juan Nazareno's thunderous winner capped a resounding victory for the South Americans.
