France ease into the semi-finals of the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey with a comfortable 4-0 win against Uzbekistan.

France have eased into the semi-finals of the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Uzbekistan.

Les Bleus hit the post twice during the opening 20 minutes, but eventually took the lead on 31 minutes when Yaya Sanogo tapped in from close range.

They doubled their advantage minutes later through Paul Pogba's penalty after Jean-Christophe Bahebeck was brought down by Tohirjon Shamshitdinov.

France were awarded a second penalty before the break following Diyorjon Turapov's handball, and Florian Thauvin made no mistake from 12 yards.

Kurt Zouma sealed the win on 64 minutes with a glancing header from a corner, before Uzbekistan ended the match with 10 men as Shamshitdinov picked up his second yellow card of the evening.
