WORLD CUP| Mbappe stars as France slay Australia

France got their World Cup defence off to a winning start, easily beating Australia!

Les Bleus got caught cold by Goodwin’s early goal, the fastest at this World Cup so far, but weren’t fazed as they then proceeded to score four goals without reply.

Giroud will be pleased with his double, while Mbappe and Rabiot goals were also magnificent.

France have won five consecutive games at the World Cup, their joint-longest winning run at the tournament, having also won five in a row from 1986 to 1998.

Australia have lost 11 of their 17 games at the World Cup (65%), the joint-highest ratio by any nation to play 10+ matches at the competition (Saudi Arabia also 65%).
