  8. GOAL - Germany 2-1 Peru

    Nico Schulz (84 mins)

    A late winner for Germany.

    A comedy of errors from Peru.

    The left-back heads the ball across his own box towards Nico Schulz, whose weak, low shot squirms under the body of goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and into the net.

  13. Post update

    France 2-1 Netherlands

    Much better contest in the second half.

    Paul Pogba finds Kylian Mbappe's run, but the PSG forward's shot is blocked by Virgil van Dijk's inch perfect tackle.

    France 2-1 Netherlands

    That's why they are world champions. Knocked down with a punch but got back up off the canvass to smack their opponents back.

    That was Olivier Giroud's 32nd international goal for France, taking him fourth on the all-time list by himself ahead of the GOAT Zinedine Zidane.

  15. GOAL - France 2-1 Netherlands

    Olivier Giroud (75 mins)

    What a hit!

    Netherlands were coming on strong but France regain the advantage in fantastic fashion.

    Sub Benjamin Mendy puts a cross towards the penalty spot for Olivier Giroud to nip in ahead of Virgil van Dijk and volley in.

    Goal drought over.

    Olivier Giroud
  16. CLOSE!

    France 1-1 Netherlands

    Great move from France involving Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe (obviously) but Olivier Giroud's shot from six yards out is blocked well by Dutch captain Virgil van Dijk.

  17. Post update

    France 1-1 Netherlands

    The tables have been turned.

    Now it is Netherlands on the front foot and suddenly France are looking a little tired and being made to scramble back.

  18. CLOSE!

    France 1-1 Netherlands

    The Netherlands have their tails up now.

    Memphis Depay does not have any support so has a go himself but drives a strike into the sidenetting.

  19. GOAL - France 1-1 Netherlands

    Ryan Babel (66 mins)

    Did not see this coming.

    This goal is a throwback to great Dutch sides of the past - Total Football.

    Netherlands win the ball back in the middle of the park and are on the front foot from there.

    Memphis Depay with a first-time pass to Kenny Tete down the right, the Lyon full-back with a first-time cross and Ryan Babel with a first-time finish from eight yards out.

    France goalkeeper Alphonse Areola got both hands to it but could not keep it out.

    Deafly silence inside Stade de France.

    Ryan Babel
  20. CLOSE!

    France 1-0 Netherlands

    What a miss.

    Netherlands fashion their first chance of the game from Matthijis de Ligt's poked pass forward, Georginio Wijnaldum evades Samuel Umtiti but drags his shot wide from six yards.

    Could that come to cost them?
