Griezmann was brought down by Josh Risdon early in the second-half and referee Andres Cunha called for a VAR review after it had looked like it was play-on.

A video technology row erupted during France's World Cup victory over Australia after an historic penalty decision changed the course of the match.

Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak sent his French counterpart Hugo Lloris the wrong way to give Australia hopes of forcing a draw at the Kazan Arena but Pogba grabbed the victor in the 81st minute. I got a lot of reactions, let's say that out of 10 people seven said it was a penalty and three said no penalty. Two things are important, transition and racing with the ball. "With the ball, we were not good enough".

Samuel Umtiti was involved in one of the most freakish moments at the World Cup so far in France's match against Australia.

Kylian Mbappe became the youngest player to represent France at a World Cup at 19 years, 178 days.

"The attorney general said today somehow ... there's a justification for this in the Bible", Mr. They come to the border with nothing and you throw their children in cages.

Pogba had other ideas, though, sending a stabbed effort towards goal from the edge of the area which was cruelly diverted past Ryan by Aziz Behich to get the French off to a winning start.

"I didn't expect such a tough game and to play against a team so well organised", he added in the mixed zone.

The trio did do enough to ensure France had the better of the opening half but Australia had the best chance to score before the break when a deflection off Frenchman Corentin Tolisso from an Aaron Mooy free kick was well saved by Lloris.

Australia had frustrated Les Bleus for almost an hour of their Group C game, with goalscoring opportunities limited. It was an inspiring, tough showing from the Aussies, who gave the French team all they could handle and giving Didier Deschamps something to think about entering the next match.

Last night Cristiano Ronaldo rose to the occasion and gave all of us plenty of taking points in Portugal's enthralling 3-3 draw with Spain.
