  • Griezmann: Pogba will show his brilliance

Regarding the first-used VAR technology which helped France earn a penalty, the 49-year-old coach said "an error is corrected" because of the new technology.

Paul Pogba scored nine minutes from time to hand France a nervy win after Mile Jedinak's goal from the penalty spot had cancelled out Antoine Griezmann's strike also from the spot.

France's forward Antoine Griezmann controls the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group C football match between France and Australia at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on June 16. Cunha initially waved away calls from the French players after defender Josh Risdon fouled Antoine Griezmann with a late tackle. "When the referee went to see the video, I thought it was a penalty".

'Yes, I speak with Dybala, but whether I speak to Dybala or speak with Umtiti, who plays at Barcelona, it's not there I will go and play'.

In the second match, Lionel Messi missed a penalty kick and Iceland managed a 1-1 draw against Argentina in the first World Cup appearance for the tiny island nation.

"I'm not going to complain about the use of video today", France coach Didier Deschamps said. But the team of VAR officials had a look at the incident and decided after multiple replays that Griezmann had indeed been fouled.

MF Corentin Tolisso, 4 - Booked after 76 minutes and substituted two minutes later, he was lucky that Lloris prevented a first half own goal.

It's the ideal start for France, whose ambition is to finish at the top of a group that also includes Peru and Denmark.

A good result for France, but this dynamic attack was anything but.

France head into their World Cup opener against Australia in Kazan on Saturday sweating on the fitness of fullback Djibril Sidibe and under pressure to deliver an emphatic win to erase doubts about the cohesion of a team of brilliant individuals. "We are very happy that we won a highly hard and complicated game", said Deschamps after the game Saturday.

Les Bleus' game-winner arrived after goal-line technology awarded Paul Pogba a goal that likely wouldn't have been given prior to FIFA's technological revolution.

That was not the case, and instead Jedinak played an integral role in midfield, scoring from the penalty spot to level the scores in the second half.
