Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba should be stripped of World Cup goal

Penalty chaos: France win first ever VAR spot-kick, before Samuel Umtiti's inexplicable error

Australia leveled the game from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute, but Paul Pogba scored the game victor with just eight minutes left to play in regulation. The Premier League in England has decided against it, and feels goal-line technology (in use in the competition since 2013 and at the World Cup since 2014) is all the innovation its referees need.

"When I received the knock I believed there was a penalty", Griezmann said.

Kylian Mbappe became the youngest player to represent France at a World Cup at 19 years, 178 days.

Frank Leboeuf joins the ESPN FC crew to talk about France's underwhelming display and what must be done to play to their potential.

The 1998 champions, France, with several European club stars in their starting team, laboured to beat a gritty Australia 2-1 in yesterday's early game.

It was imperative Australia played with a solid foundation at the back, particularly in the opening exchanges of the game. "However, after the referee did not blow his whistle, I forgot about VAR - all the better for us [that it exists]".

MF Tom Rogic, 6 - Australia's most creative player was far too passive for the majority of the game.

Australia coach Bert van Marwijk felt Cunha was still undecided even after seeing the replay but he acknowledged how tough it can be for the men in black with thousands of baying fans: "He's also a human being and everybody makes mistakes".

That sparked a concerted offensive by Didier Deschamps' team but Australia stemmed the tide as the half progressed. The VAR is meant to come to the aid of the referee in four "game-changing situations": goals (and any foul leading up to them), penalty decisions, direct red card incidents, and cases of mistaken identity. For example, it's hard to recall a moment when Australia's chief playmaker Rogic found space and used it to his advantage the way Pogba did on two occasions.

Deschamps's France side will move on to their remaining Group C clashes against Denmark and Peru, who meet later on Saturday, with three points but plenty to do to justify their place among the pre-tournament favourites. "It's the determination of making it happen".

English ex-forward and pundit Gary Lineker compared Cueva's miss to a similarly-ballooned penalty by Italy's Roberto Baggio that gave the 1994 World Cup to Brazil.
