France have taken a major step towards qualifying for the last 16 by beating Australia 2-1 in Kazan in a match featuring two penalties and significant interventions from technology.
Didier Deschamps’ side, runners-up on home soil at Euro 2016, took the lead in the 58th minute when the video assistant referee alerted the Uruguayan official Andrés Cunha of a possible foul on Antoine Griezmann by Josh Risdon. This was confirmed and Griezmann converted.
