Giroud puts the Blues in charge: France-Australia 2-1 (LIVE)

France put the pressure on entry thanks to the speed of Dembélé, already very restless. But Australia did not let it count and offered themselves the first shot of the match, completely unscrewed.

In the eighth minute, Leckie escaped on the left side while Lucas Hernandez collapsed, hit in the knee. The Australian winger went to serve Goodwin who opened the scoring on the first real chance of the match (0-1). Lucas Hernandez was to be replaced by his brother Theo, in stride.

In the 22nd minute, Duke took advantage of a bad pass from Hernandez to take his chance from 25 meters with a heavy shot that went just wide of Lloris’ goal.

Theo Hernandez saved the honor of the siblings by delivering a superb cross for Rabiot’s header. The median of Juventus succeeded in his recovery, deceiving a helpless Ryan (1-1, 27th).

It took just five more minutes for France to make it 2-1 on a huge giveaway from Ryan and the Australian defence, who wanted to play ball in their own half. But Rabiot was passing by to recover the leather and serve Giroud on a platter.
