Kylian Mbappe gets injured and this could be a big issue for France. They face The Netherlands next and will be hoping that the striker can return to training before Thursday as their match is on Friday.

Key Stats

  • William Saliba completed more accurate long balls than any other player in the first half (3).
  • France have won the opening game at all six major tournaments under Didier Deschamps.
  • Max Wöber is the first Austrian to score an own goal at a major tournament.
  • The defeat ended Austria’s 7-match winless run in all competitions.
  • The win was Didier Deschamps’ 100th as the France manager.


France will be delighted with the win, but they need to get better as the tournament goes on as they are nowhere near the level needed to win the trophy this summer. Austria showed a lot of fight and will be delighted with the performance despite the loss.
