Griezmann And Australia Manager Had Different Reactions To VAR Controversy

Arzani not ready to play full game says van Marwijk

Goals from Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba helped France beat Australia 2-1 at the Kazan Arena in Russian Federation on Saturday at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"The way we wanted to play, they [Australian players] did it for 95 percent, so I cannot blame any of my players, I only can give them compliments".

France's early promise quickly faded before they were presented with a flawless chance to break the deadlock in questionable circumstances 13 minutes into the second half.

Australia, who felt aggrieved as defender Risdon appeared to have touched the ball before tripping Griezmann with his follow-through, quickly levelled through Mile Jedinak's spot-kick, before a late goal from Paul Pogba clinched victory for France.

"And then you have to take a decision - France or Australia".

Paul Pogba struck the victor in the 81st minute when his half-volley snuck in off the crossbar.

France's forward Antoine Griezmann controls the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group C football match between France and Australia at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on June 16.

Defender Risdon perhaps had reason to dispute the decision, before Griezmann seized the opportunity, whipping the ball to Ryan's left to claim his 21st global goal. We gave a very good performance.

But after highlighting opening match jitters, Deschamps refused to hit out at his misfiring front line of Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe. Aaron Mooy's delivery from the left was deflected towards his own goal by Corentin Tolisso, but Hugo Lloris was aware of the danger and turned the ball aside for a corner.

Technology was again called on to confirm the entire ball crossed the goal-line, leaving Australia's players distraught.

"The French didn't know what to do anymore in big parts of the game." van Marwijk said.

France take all three-points and move atop Group C as the Socceroos look to reorganise ahead of their clash with Denmark on Thursday. The Atletico Madrid striker had no problems from the spot, leaving Mat Ryan with no chance after slamming the ball into the top corner.

With Didier Deschamps' side dominating early on, Mbappe won a free-kick 25 yards out minutes later but Pogba's strike was straight at goalkeeper Ryan.

Although hailing the "guts" of his Socceroos side, Van Marwijk - who coached the Dutch to the 2010 World Cup final - could not hide his disappointment with Cunha.

The Socceroos have kept an electric France side scoreless in an impressive first half of action.
