History made as VAR used for first time in World Cup match

Antoine Griezmann GETTY Antoine Griezmann will be aiming for a top tournament

Antoine Griezmann scored from the penalty spot to put France one up, and speaking to the media after the match, van Marwijk couldn't hide his disappointment of Cunha's handling of the game.

Stephanie Brantz caught up with Julien Laurens after France squeezed past Australia with a 2-1 win.

Maybe it's a strategy it's a short competition with so many matches to play in a month'.

"He has to accept that France need him to play as a holding player who wins the ball and plays simple passes". Many watching felt replays showed that Risdon did get the faintest of touches on the ball.

After reviewing the footage pitchside for little more than 30 seconds, Cunha overturned his original decision and awarded France a penalty, much to the fury of the Australian players.

"He's also a human being, and everyone makes mistakes".

Striker Antoine Griezmann lashed home the historic spot kick in the 58th minute but Australia hit back with a penalty of their own when Samuel Umtiti inexplicably handled the ball in the box four minutes later.

"It's definitely not over for us, we have got a long way to go in this tournament I feel", Milligan said.


MF Corentin Tolisso, 4 - Booked after 76 minutes and substituted two minutes later, he was lucky that Lloris prevented a first half own goal. "The Australians played very defensively". It was confirmed by goal line technology.

'We gave a very good performance.

France's match victor Paul Pogba has paid a shin pad tribute to his late father after after sinking the Socceroos at the World Cup.

'(I am) proud and disappointed.

France head into their first World Cup game against Australia on Saturday boasting arguably the tournament's strongest squad and Desailly believes the class of 2018 is just as talented as the team who won the trophy 20 years ago.

"The majority of French players were too comfortable or not wanting to risk too much, or not confident enough to make things happen".

'It's football. We have no point.

'You didn't really see a pressing team.
