Griezmann scored the first goal from a penalty spot awarded by the video assistant referee against Australia’s Josh Risdon for a foul on Antoine Griezmann, making it the first World Cup goal influenced by VAR.

Australia leveled through Mike Jedinak’s penalty after Samuel Umtiti the French and Barcelona defender handled Aaron Mooy’s free-kick. Australia surprisingly made the game difficult France to control. However, late goal from Paul Pogba ensured that France wins their first group game.
