As
it
Happened:

It
was
a
shocking
start
to
the
match
as
Australia
took
an
early
lead
in
the
9th
minute.
Matthew
Leckie’s
low
cross
was
met
on
the
far
post
by
Craig
Goodwin,
who
rifled
it
past
Hugo
Lloris
at
the
France
goal
to
open
the
scoring
for
the
Socceroos.
Lucas
Hernandez
was
then
substituted
due
to
an
injury
as
he
was
replaced
by
his
brother
Theo.

But
France
equalised
before
the
half-hour
mark
through
Adrien
Rabiot,
whose
header
brought
the
Champions
back
into
the
match.
He
rose
highest
after
the
Socceroos
switched
off
after
an
initial
clearance
from
a
corner.
Minutes
after,
Olivier
Giroud
gave
the
French
the
lead
from
a
Rabiot
pass.

Olivier
Giroud
is
now
France’s
joint
top
goal-scorer

Kylian
Mbappe
had
the
chance
to
double
their
lead
but
blazed
his
shot
over
from
close
range.
At
the
break,
it
was
the
Champions
with
a
slender
lead
as
they
controlled
the
game
after
a
shocking
start.

Kylian
Mbappe
and
Giroud
added
one
each
in
the
second
half
as
France
came
away
4-1
victorious
in
the
first
match.
The
win
means
the
French
are
the
first
defending
champions
to
win
their
first
group
match
in
16
years.
