In the beginning of the second half, Giroud found the back of the net with a beautiful bicycle kick, but it was ruled out as a foul on Wojciech Szczesny.

In what looks like the final match for Robert Lewandowski in the World Cup, the Barcelona striker scored a consolidation penalty. He did that with a smile on his face.

The game shows us that France has its share of impatience. Antoine Griezmann had his moments feeding the forwards in his new withdrawn role, but on a pitch that hasn’t held up well after a few games, it was occasionally difficult.

To Cash’s credit, he continued the fight against Mbappe who was awarded the man of the match after providing an assist and two goals.
