Ada Hegerberg's two goals lift Norway past Ivory Coast

MONCTON, New Brunswick -- Ada Hegerberg scored twice to secure Norway's berth in the knockout stage of the Women's World Cup with a 3-1 win over Ivory Coast on Monday.

Norway moves on as the second team from Group B behind Germany, and it will play the second team from Group F on June 22.

Hegerberg scored the opening goal for Norway in the 6th minute, beating Ivory Coast goalkeeper Cynthia Djohore at the near post. Hegerberg added her second with a left-footed kick in the 62nd minute, and Solveig Gulbrandsen put Norway up 3-0 in the 67th minute.

Ange Nguessan scored the only goal for Ivory Coast, a booming right-footed blast from well outside the penalty box in the 71st minute.
