Pogba Bags France Winner Vs Australia As Technology Reigns

Pogba Bags France Winner Vs Australia As Technology Reigns”

Here are five things we learned.

Today, France and Australia kick off Group C at 10:00 am GMT for the first of four games on the first Saturday of the tournament. "The referee did not bow his whistle, so I moved on with that".

Struggling to break down a tough and physical Socceroos defence in a frustrating first half, it took a first, historic VAR decision at the World Cup to hand France a lifeline. I'm looking for a better explanation but I don't want to take anything away from the game and that lovely game that it is and what we have done today.

In Brazil four years ago, France became the first team in World Cup history to be awarded a goal using goal-line technology and they again had it to thank in Russian Federation.

Defender Samuel Umtiti, who handled the ball to give Australia their penalty, thanked his teammates for helping him to put his mistake behind him.

Suicide rates increased for all age groups under 75, but middle-aged adults aged 45 to 64 had the largest rate increase. Alejo encourages anyone with thoughts of suicide or anyone needing help to reach out to pillar or other organizations.

Van Marwijk believed his team deserved a draw: "We gave a very good performance". You look at the strike-force they possess, almost every one of their players is playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world.

MF Jackson Irvine, N/R - Always lively, Irvine played his usual box-to-box game, but was possibly brought on a little too late by van Marwijk.

FW Ousmane Dembele, 4 - He looked every bit one of the most inexperienced members of the group and it was a surprise that Deschamps kept him on for 70 minutes before introducing Olivier Giroud and Nabil Fekir.

Pogba, whose victor was aided by goal-line technology after his strike clipped a defender and bounced off the underside of the bar, told TF1: "It is the World Cup - there are no small teams".

Unfortunately for Australia, this game wasn't played in 2010.

Frank Leboeuf joins the ESPN FC crew to talk about France's underwhelming display and what must be done to play to their potential.

Once again, France looked like they didn't play enough as a team and Lloris agreed.

Just like the other three matches played on Saturday, this saw a penalty kick awarded to Croatia in the second half of play.

French coach Didier Deschamps praised Australia's tactical organisation and the way it disrupted his highly regarded team, but also bemoaned France's lack of urgency.

Croatia face Argentina in their second group game.
