Oh **** off VAR, ruining football. 

Ruined what should have been a proper celebratary moment.  Instead they had to go wait for VAR to make sure it was all above board.

They could have ruled it out if not for VAR, that would really have ruined the celebrations ^^

That's not VAR.

Diferrent technology. Ref gets the notification on his watch if the sensors detect that the ball is in.

They went to VAR to check for offside though.

They should have a PGVAR (Post-Game VAR) and remove the first French goal, also give Umtiti a booking for that handball, can't believe he didn't get one for deliberate handball.

No that's fine, goal line tech is instant so thats good. It's the VAR review to make sure someone wasn't offside that we were aparently waiting for there.

Australia can take some real credit from this, could get some points against Peru and Denmark.

I appreciate they are knackered but it's the 90th minute and not one Australian player is running off the ball. They are standing still looking for someone to do something and it's the CB who does it ffs.

Lawrenson gets tiresome after a while but  have to agree that Hernandez is a little scumbag.

Hernandez such an idiot. He fully intended to go down when the ball was in the air. Never even caught him in the head.

Performances like this make you wish they had drawn one of the others as their opening game. Can make all the difference as Iran and Russia have shown

I really think Peru and Denmark are a class above Australia and that France will struggle even more against them.

Matt Ryan has been really good I think

He's been great. Done nothing wrong all game - conceded a pen and a fluke OG/deflection off the cross bar :D

Surely with the focus on head injuries being more highlighted these days then Hernandez should be forced off the pitch the amount of times he's gone down holding his head and face?

Haha. This is a good point and should be used as a deterrent. 

Go down holding any part of your head, must take 5 mins on the sidelines to be doctor assessed. 

Imagine how quickly it would stop.

The only difference for Iran is the win itself. They'll get smashed by both Spain and Portugal no matter if it's the first or last game.

France will take that, not the most convincing performance but it's only about the result at this point of the tournament
