Qatar 2022: France Destroys Australia in their World Cup Opener

By Daniel Oriloye - Defending champions France began their FIFA World Cup campaign with an impressive 4-1 comeback victory over the Socceroos of Australia in their Group D opener at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakra, Qatar.

Craig Goodwin put Australia ahead barely ten minutes into the encounter before Adrien Rabiot equalised for France just before the half hour mark.

Five minutes later, Giroud put Les Bleus in the lead for the first time thanks to an assist from Rabiot. Irvine almost levelled the score for Australia just before the half whistle but his header struck the post.

France’s dominance continued in the second half of the game with Mbappé doubling the lead in the 68th minute before assisting Giroud to hit a brace three minutes later.

With the goal, Giroud made history by equalling Thierry Henry’s record as the joint topscorer for the France national team with 51 goals each.
