Socceroos must accept VAR, insists Jedinak

Sidney Guerrero | 17 June, 2018, 17:01

It was a hard defeat for Australia to take after such a resilient display.

"When I received the knock I believed there was a penalty", Griezmann said.

"The body language was that he didn't know", van Marwijk said about the referee.

"I think at least we deserved a point". They also have a skilful and inspired playmaker in Aaron Mooy.

Trent Sainsbury was called upon on more than one occasion and the lofty defender showed precision timing on his tackles to comfortably negate Mbappe and Griezmann contesting the ball.

Australia rallied and started to push France back into their own half and although Deschamps's side responded, finding themselves evenly matched appeared to have a lasting effect and Australia were rarely threatened before the break.

The cross fell short but found its way through the defence as the Aussies again waned in conviction in front of goal.

After multiple views of the replays, the VAR ruled it as a penalty which Griezmann converted successfully to give his side a 1-0 lead in the 58th minute.

The star striker went down easily and despite officials waving the penalty it was ultimately awarded by the VAR.

McDonald's to replace plastic straws with paper ones from September
Meanwhile, McDonald's says it will begin trials for non-plastic straws in select restaurants in the U.S., France and Norway. McDonald's announced Friday that it will test alternatives to plastic straws in some US restaurants later this year.

France had fashioned the opening chance with two minutes on the clock, Kylian Mbappe bringing a save from Mat Ryan with an angled shot.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti inexplicably handled a free-kick in the box, allowing Socceroos captain Jedinak to calmly send Lloris the wrong way.

Behich summed up the mood in the Australia camp when talking to The New Daily post-match.

Mile Jedinak equalised from the spot for Australia before Paul Pogba gave France victory in the 81st minute.

In its World Cup debut, the VAR immediately divided the footballing world.

Technology was never going to rid football of controversy, however, and Australia coach Bert van Marwijk was not alone in thinking that it was not a foul with Risdon making contact with the ball before Griezmann tumbled over his trailing foot.

It was a fearless display from the Australians who looked world-class in periods but ultimately lacked conviction up front.
