Russia 2018 World Cup: France 2- Australia 1

France beat Australia 2-1 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Group C opener, which was a tightly contested game.

Paul Pogba was hailed on Twitter as he produced the winning goal for France who beat Australia 2-1 in their 2018 FIFA World Cup, group C opener on Saturday, June 16.

The first half saw both teams play cagey and fail to crave the other open, as it ended 0-0 at the break.

Paul Pogba scored a late goal to earn France a hard-fought 2-1 win against Australia as technology played a major part in their opening World Cup Group C game on Saturday.

Midfielder Pogba, who was criticised after recent below-par performances, found the back of the net with a lob after a fine one-two with second-half substitute Olivier Giroud nine minutes from time, the effort being confirmed by goal-line technology.

Antoine Griezmann converted the first penalty to be awarded by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) at a World Cup in the 58th after being brought down by Josh Rishdon, only for Mile Jedinak to level, also with a penalty, after Samuel Umtiti handled.

Peru take on Denmark in the other Group C match at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk later on Saturday, while Nigeria also takes on Croatia at 8:00pm today.

SPORTS – Mesut Ozil’s days at Arsenal appear to be numbered, with Turkish giants Fernerbache set to make a shock move for the midfielder in January.

The 29-year-old’s long-term future at the Emirates Stadium looks uncertain, having so far failed to show the work ethic manager Unai Emery requires from his players.

Ozil signed a new contract worth £350,000 a week at the end of last season, but could be on his way out before the season ends.

Fenerbache have emerged as shock frontrunners to sign the German in the January window, as they look to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding his future.

According to Turkish news outlet, Fotomac, Fenerbache are leading the chase for the midfielder with Manchester United also understood to be monitoring his situation.
