Technology helps France beat Australia

France striker Antoine Griezmann

"I'm proud and disappointed, I think we gave a very good performance, nobody had expected that we could play like this against France", said van Marwijk.

France's forward Olivier Giroud (C) vies for the ball with Australia's defender Trent Sainsbury (R) during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group C football match between France and Australia at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on June 16, 2018.

France's Paul Pogba challenges for the ball with Australia's Jackson Irvine during the group C match between France and Australia at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, Saturday, June 16.

That Australia rarely mounted any attacks to put them under pressure helped Raphael Varane and Co but sterner tests await them against Denmark and Peru.

Griezmann admitted France had not played as well as they could have.

As of early Thursday afternoon, their live outage map showed that about 1,000 customers around Wilkes-Barre were without power. Newswatch 16 got a tour inside Wilkes-Barre Township Commons, a shopping area that's been shredded by 130-mile hour winds.

In fact, as Diego Forlan unfurled the piece of paper that confirmed Australia had drawn Les Bleus in their opening World Cup clash, scenes of the Socceroos' 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Germany in 2010 sprang to mind.

It was a cruel stroke of luck against an Australia side that had already suffered from the first FIFA World Cup goal influenced by the controversial Video Assistant Referee [VAR] system.

The French team was given a penalty kick, eventually converted by Antoine Griezmann in the 58th minute, after the referee watched the replay of a foul on the sideline.

"You can see today they (Australia) play very well, defend very well, they play altogether".

Foster said Risdon only collected Griezmann in his follow-through after he'd knocked the ball away.

The end of net neutrality is here
The US has officially repealed rules that governed the way net providers treated the data that travelled across their networks. Several states including NY and Washington , have passed regulations that impose net neutrality on a local level.

Coach van Marwijk said his first reaction was that it was not a penalty but preferred to talk about the pride he had in his players. "The first decision - the ball seemed to keep going and he (Griezmann) got the shout", he said.

Mile Jedinak, the Aussie skipper, did what Griezmann managed at the other end and it was back level, with the game flowing quite nicely.

Teenager Daniel Arzani came on for Robbie Kruse as Australia chased another equaliser, but they were unable to conjure another goal as France held firm for five minutes of added time.

Even Pogba's goal might not have stood in the days before technology was brought into the game with the midfielder's shot looping off the shin of Aziz Behich, hitting the crossbar and bouncing down inside the goal before coming back out. "Then they got the goal, we gave it a go but it was not enough".

France skipper Didier Deschamps said: "We are very happy to have won as it was a highly hard match". On a few times occasion France were left waiting for a ball to be used to the corner.
