Nabil Fekir pokes Chelsea star in the eye during France goal celebrations

 Nabil Fekir got a little bit over excited when France scored the winner against Australia, as he accidentally poked Olivier Giroud during the celebrations  Paul Pogba’s deflected shot in the 80th minute snatched all three points for France during a close encounter with Australia  France were awarded a controversial penalty and went 1-0 ahead, before Australia managed to win their own spot-kick and convert it to bring the game level  The French struggled to break through against the resilient minnows, before a stroke of luck ten minutes from time  The referee awarded France their goal after his watch buzzed to tell him the ball had crossed the line  It was a bitter blow for the Australians, but a delighted French side celebrated with Pogba  Giroud had his arms wrapped around Pogba, when Fekir entered the hug and accidentally caught his team-mate in the eye  The Chelsea striker immediately sought an apology from his international team-mate, and Fekir was quick to oblige  Australia will feel lady luck was against them in Kazan, and the Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak admitted it was a hard result to take  He said: ‘We knew we had to be right at it from the start, maintain that discipline and focus We got ourselves back in the game, felt OK, but they got that goal, we’re disappointed  ‘We just didn’t have that luck. That’s football, we have to take the positives out of today and move on  ‘If we maintain that form and discipline, structure, concentration throughout, let’s see where it gets us I can’t fault the boys tonight.’
