Pick these outOh, ArseneMbappe and Lewandowski embrace at the final whistle, and yes I probably am too old to use the phrase ‘game recognising game’. It was a comfortable win for France in the end, though Poland made them work. Olivier Giroud’s record-breaking goal just before half-time opened the door, and Kylian Mbappe marched through it with two scorchers in the second half. And just look what it means. Full time: France 3-1 PolandThat was the last kick of the game. GOAL! France 3-1 Poland (Lewandowski 90+9)Lewandowski sends Lloris the wrong way to get his second goal of the tournament. No clean sheet for Lloris on his big day, but a nice way for Lewandowski to say ta-ra. That’s better. Photograph: Lee Smith/ReutersLloris saves the penalty - but it has to be retaken! Lloris was off his line, so that’s fair enough.
This will be given. Upamecano had his back turned but this is the kind of decision referees have to give these days. 90+5 min “My girlfriend works in fashion and has no interest in football, ” says Tim Greer. “However she did comment on the French kit, she said she is particularly taken by the shade of blue, the zip on the top which is very modern and the red socks, so there you go. ”Can you ask her what she thinks of Australia’s 1991 kit? 90+4 min Milik hits the outside of the post with a lovely overhead kick, though it wouldn’t have counted as he was offside. 90+4 min I thought, watching Mbappe against Denmark, that there was just a hint – a suggestion, a soupçon – of Diego Maradona in 1986.
It was an awful penalty, mind, and Lewandowski has now asked for the ball to be changed! That was so bad that Robert Lewandowski can have another go. Photograph: Lee Smith/ReutersPenalty to Poland! And a chance for Robert Lewandowski to end his World Cup story with a goal. That’s a penalty. Photograph: Bernadett Szabó/ReutersVAR check for a Poland penalty! Grosicki’s cross hits the outstretched arm of Upamecano, and the referee is going to the monitor.
Fantastic finish. ”82 min After another pulse-quickening dribble from Mbappe, Hernandez shoots over on the turn. 80 min So, France will play either England or Senegal in the last quarter-final on Saturday. Win that and they will meet Spain, Portugal, Morocco or Switzerland in the semis. 79 min Like Australia and the USA, Poland will go home wrestling with what-ifs, most notably that triple chance before half-time. But I’m sure they’ll get an infinitely reception than they would have done had Mexico scored a third on Wednesday night. 76 min: Double substitution Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram replace Ousmane Dembele and Old Man Giroud, who just keeps rolling along. That was a vicious finish. Giroud produced the most glorious first touch to kill an up-and-under clearance from Hernandez, then gave the ball to Dembele on the right.
Yellow card for Cash. 87 min: Double substitution for Poland Jan Bednarek and Kamil Grosicki come on for Jakub Kiwior, who was sadly at fault for the crucial first goal, and Przemyslaw Frankowski. 85 min “On the notion that this French team is worse than 1998-2002, I would point to the fact that this lineup is missing its entire starting midfield from the last final, its starting left-back and its Ballon d’Or-winning striker, along with 3-4 other players, ” says Abhyudaya Tyagi. “And they still look like one of the best teams in the tournament.
Interesting that the departed German shirt was popular, especially on these boards. I’m not a fan, I much prefer the simple white-black as per 1974. I really liked their old green away shirt, though you don’t see it much anymore. ”I loved the one they wore at Wembley in 1991. If you found a box of those in the DFB attic, you’d be a very rich person. 88 min Thuram runs the weary Cash, who is a split-second late with his tackle.
Szczesny got a touch, which was an achievement in itself, but couldn’t keep it out. GOAL! France 3-0 Poland (Mbappe 90+1)Kylian Mbappe has seen Lionel Messi’s performance and raised it. Mbappe does it again to make it 3-0. Photograph: Dylan Martinez/Reuters90 min “I too am a fan of the French kit, the dark blue maybe copying the change to the blue on the French flag, ” says Thomas Meehan. “The Australian gold-green-white gets high marks from me as well.
