Deschamps: Griezmann has to do more

Griezmann: Pogba will show his brilliance Penalty chaos: France win first ever VAR spot-kick, before Samuel Umtiti's inexplicable error
Frederick Owens | 19 June, 2018, 15:51

French head coach Didier Deschamps told press on Saturday afternoon that his team must and will do better in the next game following Les Bleus beat Australia with the help of the first use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the World Cup Group C opener.

In the first match of the day, France launched their World Cup campaign with a hard-fought win against Australia as VAR was used for the first time at a World Cup.

"The first match is always a major hurdle".

The 27-year-old Griezmann has scored 21 global goals, including five during France's run to the Euro 2016 final.

Paul Pogba scored nine minutes from time to hand France a nervy win after Mile Jedinak's goal from the penalty spot had cancelled out Antoine Griezmann's strike also from the spot.

The "job got done", reflected Deschamps.

Griezmann admitted that pressure surrounding the French team, with seven players out of the 11 starters having never played in a World Cup before, was intense.

Umtiti jested he was in fact playing an entirely different sport!

"It makes you want to copy it and bring this World Cup back to France. We got the job done, but we can do much, much better".

XXXTentacion has made headlines in recent months for a string of legal problems stemming from a 2016 domestic violence arrest. According to TMZ , the rapper had been leaving a motorcycle dealership in a auto when someone ran up and shot him.


"It was a hard, complicated match against a tough Australian side".

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 wasn't a great start for us... we should have pressed them a little higher, but even then we weren't flowing well".

Although Griezmann wrote himself into the history books by becoming the first player to score at the World Cup from a VAR verdict, he suggested some of France's World Cup débutants had suffered stage fright. Many watching felt replays showed that Risdon did get the faintest of touches on the ball.

"But there was no whistle so I thought about other things".

2018 marks Peru's return to the World Cup finals for the first time in almost 40 years.

"Nobody had expected that we could play like this against France", he added.

'Yes, I speak with Dybala, but whether I speak to Dybala or speak with Umtiti, who plays at Barcelona, it's not there I will go and play'.
