Les Bleus registered a 1-0 win after Austrian defender Maximilian Wöber scored an own goal. The French dominated possession through most of the contest but Austria had a few great chances of their own.

After the Austria game, the FFF president, Philippe Diallo spoke about how he hasn’t been ruled out of the tournament. In the press conference, he said, “Concerning his participation in the rest of the tournament, it is a bit premature to decide that. The news coming from the doctors is more positive than not and luckily he doesn’t need surgery which would rule him out completely for the rest of the tournament.”

“They have tried to limit the consequences of the impact,” Diallo said. “It happened last night and there is no immediate surgical intervention right now. We will wait and see during the day [Tuesday]. We will see exactly what happens over the next day or two.”
