France beat Australia 2-1 in World Cup after VAR history is made
France beat Australia 2-1 in their opening World Cup match on Saturday after the Video Assistant Referee system was used for the first time in the competition’s history.
Antoine Griezmann had a penalty awarded thanks to VAR and scored before Mile Jedinak equalised for Australia from the spot. Paul Pogba’s 81st-minute shot bounced over the line off the crossbar to give France a narrow win.
