Pogba Scores As France Edge Out Australia #WorldCupWith360nobs

Paul Pogba scored the goal that proved the match-winner as a stuttering France started their World Cup campaign with a win over Australia on Saturday, June 16, in Kazan in a match featuring two penalties and significant interventions from technology.

Antoine Griezmann also made World Cup history by winning and scoring the first-ever penalty to be awarded by VAR before Mile Jedinak equalised from the spot.

Didier Deschamps’s men, who were the runners-up on home soil at Euro 2016, flattered to deceive for much of the game before Pogba spared their blushes with eight minutes remaining, his deflected strike ensuring they began their Group C campaign with all three points.

Up next for France will be a match against Peru in Ekaterinburg on Thursday, immediately after Australia play Denmark in Samara.

The group finishes on Tuesday 26 June, with Denmark playing France at the Luzhniki in Moscow and Australia playing Peru in Sochi.
