• France become fifth European team to qualify for India 2017
  • Amine Gouiri's ninth goal of the tournament seals 1-0 win over Hungary
  • England, Germany, Spain and Turkey have already qualified

France have claimed Europe's fifth and final berth at India 2017 after beating Hungary 1-0 in a FIFA U-17 World Cup play-off match at the UEFA U-17 European Championship.

Amine Gouiri was Les Bleus' hero, scoring the only goal of the game to continue his prolific run in Croatia, leaving his tally standing at an impressive nine goals from five appearances.

France had lost 3-2 to Hungary in the group phase but claimed revenge in a much tighter encounter, with Szabolcs Schon wasting the best of the Hungarians' chances. 

Lionel Rouxel's Bleus team will now head to India, joining England, Germany, Spain and Turkey - the quartet set to compete in the U-17 EURO semi-finals.
