Tunisia beat France, Australia beat Denmark
In a nervy Group D scenario, Australia joined France in the Round of 16 with a 1-0 win over Denmark. Tunisia went out as the third-placed team, but not before registering a 1-0 win over France. Antoine Greizmann seemed to have scored the equaliser for France late into the game, but VAR intervened and found that the Atletico Madrid man was offside.
Group C action
A drama-filled Group C saw Argentina qualify for the Round of 16, following a 2-0 win over Poland, who also qualified as the group runners-up. Mexico, despite securing a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia, were knocked out of the tournament due to an inferior goal difference in comparison to Poland.
