"It was nothing to do with the fact we have a lot of young players", said Deschamps in defence of a squad which, after Nigeria, is the youngest at the World Cup.
Australia coach Bert van Marwijk was not so happy to see the referee originally not give the spot-kick but then change his mind after taking a second look. Paul Pogba played the ball through for Griezmann, who was tackled in the box by Joshua Risdon.
"It makes you want to copy it and bring this World Cup back to France".
Pogba's 80th minute strike appeared to deflect off the boot of Aziz Behich before looping into the net to hand France all three points in their opening World Cup game.
Webb added: "We can rectify mistakes in real time and come to better outcomes and fairer results".
Griezmann admitted that pressure surrounding the French team, with seven players out of the 11 starters having never played in a World Cup before, was intense. "I don't know if his little box he has on the sideline has noise", Milligan said.
Coach Didier Deschamps told TF1 his players were capable of better, saying: "It was not easy, but winning the Group C opener was very important".
Soccoroos fans across the world are sharing a heavy dose of heartbreak after Saturday night's loss against France.
"It was a hard match, it was complicated and the Australian team were very good".
Key figures Griezmann and Pogba might have scored in the match but need to do more in future games because they struggled to demonstrate their world-class ability for the most part.
'(I am) proud and disappointed.
Australia had frustrated Les Bleus for almost an hour of their Group C game, with goalscoring opportunities limited.
