France Beat Paraguay, Russia Draw With Costa Rica In U17 WC

A round-up of Thursday and Friday's action, featuring France and Paraguay, from the FIFA U17 World Cup.

New Zealand 0-0 Syria

The teams took to the pitch at 10.00pm on Thursday night, and although New Zealand looked the better side, the match ended in a goalless draw.

Paraguay 3-4 France

France went into the break 2-1 up courtesy of goals from Bilal Boutobba and Nanitamo Ikone, with Paraguay’s Arturo Aranda converting a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Julio Villalba scored an equaliser for Paraguay 57 minutes in, but France took the lead once again through Dayotchanculle Upamecano just two minutes later.

Paraguay again drew level thanks to Cristhian Paredes three minutes later, but it was Ikone who popped up with the winner in the 71st minute.

Russia 1-1 Costa Rica

There was hardly anything to separate the sides as they played out to an evenly-matched draw. Sergio Montero put Costa Rica ahead with 20 minutes to go, but Fedor Chalov made sure Russia came away with a point.
