On November 22, the first match of Group D of the Qatar World Cup was held between France and Australia.



France got off to a good start.

The French team won the last World Cup in Russia. Injuries prevented the call-up of key players such as Pogba and Kante, and even this season’s Ballon d’Or winners Benzema, Nkunku, and Kimpembe, who had been called up, were also out with injury. The team entered its first match under unfortunate circumstances.


The French team selected Konate, a surprise call-up, at CB. He will be paired with Upamecano. The front line was lined up with Mbappé, Griezmann, Dembele, and Giroud.


The game took an unexpected turn. In the 9th minute of the first half, Leckie again beat L. Hernandez and crossed the ball into the box. Goodwin reacted to the ball and pushed it into the far corner, giving Australia the lead.


The French team had an accident at the time of the goal. L. Hernandez was dodged and fell to the ground. He was unable to get up, clutching his knee, and his teammates called for a substitution. His brother, T. Hernandez, came on.


In the 27th minute, France struck back when Rabiot headed in T. Hernandez’s cross from the left with a perfect finish. The defending champions were back in the game.


In the 32nd minute, France cut off an Australian build-up and attacked quickly. The French side then took the lead in the 32nd minute when Rabiot turned in a cross from the left and Giroud pushed it home.


In the 68th minute of the second half, Dembele’s cross from the right was met by Mbappé, who headed the ball into the net. The ace also scored.


In the 71st minute, Mbappé cut in on the left flank and crossed for Giroud, who was waiting in the area to head it home. Giroud, who was waiting inside the area, headed it in for his second goal of the day.


France continued to look in control of the match, and the final whistle sounded to end the game. The French side then made a solid start to their campaign with a 4-1 comeback win over Australia.
