The Defending Champion has started the 2022 World Cup with a 4:1 victory over Australia. Although Australia took the early lead in the game but could not maintain the momentum and, in return, was outplayed with four goals.
The Hero of the match, Olivier Giroud, made the day enjoyable. He was not even on the first team until two days ago. The injury of Karim Benzema opened the place for him, and he has become the joint-highest goal scorer for the French national squad equalling Thierry Henry.
France had twenty-three shots for the goal and seven shots on target. On the other hand, Australia had just one shot on target and scored the only goal. France has won five consecutive games at the World Cup, their joint-longest winning run.
France will take on Denmark on November 26 and look to seal their spot for the next round. It seems the crush of the World Cup-winning team not qualifying for the round of sixteen will break this year.
