After a disjointed first half, the game sparked into life shortly after the interval as referee Andres Cunha awarded a penalty to France after consulting VAR and deciding that Josh Risdon had clipped Griezmann just inside the area.

French coach Didier Deschamps praised Australia's tactical organisation and the way it disrupted his highly regarded team, but also bemoaned France's lack of urgency.

However, a moment of madness from French defender Samuel Umtiti, who handled Aaron Mooy's free-kick, enabled Australia to equalise through Mile Jedinak's penalty in Kazan.

'Australia were comfortable without the ball, but they had time to play and try to come to the final third in possession.

With nine minutes left to play Pogba scored the victor when his flicked ball was deflected in by Aziz Behich. "I am not going to complain about VAR - it went in our favour", the France manager said. "I don't feel we were beaten by a better team but nearly by technology a little bit".

Risdon said he thought the penalty should not have been given because he got the ball first.

"If you lose with a penalty. and a lucky goal just before the end, " he said with a shrug of his shoulders, disappointment etched itno his every expression.

Technology was again called on to confirm the entire ball crossed the goal-line, leaving Australia's players distraught. "[I am] proud and disappointed". Nobody expected we could play this way against France. "Forgive me for what they do not know and make me better than what they think of me".

Having previously played for Juve, Pogba concedes that he does speak with Paolo Dybala, the club's mercurial striker, but he maintains it means little.
