France win the FIFA Under-20 World Cup by beating Uruguay 4-1 on penalties in a tense final in Istanbul.

France have won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup for the first time in the competition's 36-year history by beating Uruguay on penalties in Saturday's final.

Neither side were able to break the deadlock during a tense 120 minutes in Istanbul, as both goalkeepers enjoyed largely quiet games prior to the shootout.

However, Uruguay keeper Guillermo De Amores did produce one stunning stop to deny Jordan Veretout late in normal time.

It was De Amores's opposite number, Alphonse Areola, who was the hero once the spot kicks got underway.

The Paris Saint-Germain shot-stopper saved efforts from Emiliano Velazquez and Giorgian de Arrascaeta.

Meanwhile, France scored all four of their penalties and ran out as 4-1 winners.
