The video assistant referee penalised Australia’s Josh Risdon for a sliding challenge on Antoine Griezmann, allowing the Atletico Madrid forward to dispatch a penalty, the first World Cup goal influenced by VAR.

Meanwhile, in another match, Denmark beat Peru 1-nil.

Croatia will play Nigeria at 7am.
