In the first match played today at Kazan Arena, Kazan, France defeated Australia 2-1  and earned three points.

Both the teams played well all through the game. It was only towards the last minutes, soon after France scored its second goal in the 81′ minute through Paul Pogba, who poked the ball in the box, that Australia started to lose its momentum, missing many opportunities.
