France beat Norway 2-1 on Wednesday in Group A after scoring two goals in the second half.
This is France's second win in Group A after defeating South Korea in the tournament's opening match 4-0.
At half time, the game was goalless despite an energetic start from both sides.
France's Valérie Gauvin scored the first goal one minute into the second half. The Montpellier centre-forward did not start against South Korea in the opening match.
Norway's equaliser came from an own goal scored by France's Wendie Renard as she charged towards a sweeping cross to try and divert it into touch. But her touch let her down.
However, Eugénie Le Sommer spared her blushes and scored a penalty for France in the 72nd minute to bring the score to 2-1.
Valérie Gauvin was named player of the match.
France will play Nigeria on Monday at 9 pm CEST in their last match of the group stage.
