Kylian Mbappe Lottin opened the scoring for France in the opening ten minutes, and PSG’s Jean-Kevin Augustin made it 2-0 on the half hour mark. Netherlands gave themselves hope before the break when Steven Bergwijn was brought down in the box and Abdelhak Nouri netted from the penalty spot.

However, after the break France ran riot with Augustin scoring two to complete his hat-trick, while Lottin added his second to make it 5-1 at the end.

France progress to the semi-finals, while Netherlands face Germany in a third place play-off for a U20 World Cup spot on Thursday.
