France vs Australia Tips - Les Bleus expecting comfortable victory

"I think we lacked some speed in the passes, and we did not push forward or move backward very quickly".

After a disjointed first half, the game sparked into life shortly after the interval as referee Andres Cunha awarded a penalty to France after consulting VAR and deciding that Josh Risdon had clipped Griezmann just inside the area.

While France will now take on Peru, Australia will lock horns with Denmark in their next FIFA World Cup clash.

Paul Pogba claimed he is the most criticised player on the planet, despite two key contributions in France's unconvincing 2-1 win over Australia at the World Cup.

It was the Manchester United man who scored the winning goal for the Les Bleus in the 81st minute, finding the net via a deflection, to score his team's second goal and give them a 2-1 win.

But with 17 minutes gone Hugo Lloris prevented Australia from taking a surprise lead, making a fine low save after another Mooy delivery had been deflected towards his own goal by Corentin Tolisso.

"We have not played a great game", Deschamps admitted. There were many situations in which France did not know what to do anymore.

Morocco faces off with Iran

Lingard confident of 'fearless' England showing at World Cup
England, meanwhile, won both of their warm-ups against Nigeria and Costa Rica on the back of lively first-half performances. England begin their World Cup campaign against Group G opponents Tunisia on Monday, before taking on Panama and Belgium.

Deschamps, a World Cup victor with France in 1998, will be thanking his lucky stars after a performance which poses more questions than answers about his ambitious side, the second-youngest in the tournament after Nigeria.

He fielded experienced Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud with the substitutes team in training on Wednesday, suggesting explosive 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe and Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele could form a powerful trio with Antoine Griezmann.

On 17 minutes France 'keeper Hugo Lloris turned a unsafe deflection from Corentin Tolisso around his far post.

Mbappe won a free kick 25 yards out after a challenge from behind but Paul Pogba's curling effort over the wall was straight to Ryan.

Having captained Les Bleus to the 1998 World Cup triumph on home soil, Deschamps knows a thing or two about global success and is blessed with one of the strongest squads among the 32 in Russian Federation.

Deschamps had warned of the improvement Australia have made under Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk, who took over from Ange Postecoglou in January.

France's early verve was sorely lacking for the remainder of the half, with Australia able to keep their more illustrious opponents comfortably at arm's length before the interval.
