France scored four goals in the last 20 minutes and beat North Korea 5-0 Saturday in the group stage of the women's Olympic soccer tournament.

Defender Laura Georges gave France the lead with a powerful header just before halftime, and her teammates did the rest near the end.

Substitute Elodie Thomis added the second in the 70th minute, then set up Marie-Laure Delie for the third a minute later. Wendie Renard netted a header from a corner in the 81st, and Camille Catala completed the rout with another header in the 87th after Thomis sent in a cross from the right.

The win puts France in second place in Group G ahead of North Korea on goal difference with three points.
