Highlights:

  • France’s win record against Uruguay had been superb in the past World Cups. However, this time, Uruguay had the team to challenge and even defeat France.
  • In the 1st half, France were brilliant with the ball passing which allowed them to retain more possession.
  • Uruguay depended on their defensive line-up but it did not help them much as Raphael Varane’s header put the French in the lead.

  • With 5 minutes left in the 1st half, Uruguay aimed to equalize but could not do so as the first half ended with France in the front by 1 – 0.
  • Back to back two substitutions were made in the 2nd half by Uruguay. But, it was not helping them to score a goal.
  • On the contrary, luck favored France as the Uruguayan goal keeper, palmed a straight strike from Griezmann into the nets. France had now doubled their lead.
