Historic Griezmann goal, Pogba secure slender win

17 June 2018

The video assistant referee penalised Australia's Josh Risdon for a foul on Antoine Griezmann, allowing the Atletico Madrid forward to dispatch a penalty, the first World Cup goal influenced by VAR.

Captain Hugo Lloris' form has suffered for France recently, but the Tottenham goalkeeper was alert to keep Australia at bay in the first half. "But when he went to see if there was a penalty I immediately thought about how I would take it". But it would go to VAR and with the referee seeing some contact between the two players. Many watching felt replays showed that Risdon did get the faintest of touches on the ball.

Pogba's deflected shot towards goal cannoned off the underside of the crossbar and bounced out into Mat Ryan's arms, but Cunha's watch buzzed to indicate the ball had crossed the line and France held on to secure a 2-1 win.

Australia bounced back superbly from that setback, though, and were level just four minutes later.
