FIFA said no to France’s strange request before the World Cup’s quarterfinal game against England.
After losing their third and last group stage, England Quarterfinal, France asked FIFA to change their decision not to count a goal they scored against Tunisia in the last second of the game. But their appeal turned down. Antoine Griezmann thought he had tied the game late for Les Bleus, who were playing with a different lineup because they were already in the round of 16.
The current world champions had trouble, though, and Wahbi Khazri gave Tunisia the lead in a very important game for his country. It looked like a late finish had ruined their chances of coming in second, but it ruled out, and Australia’s win over Denmark meant they had to settle for third place instead of second.

French Football Federation (FFF)
In a strange turn of events, the French Football Federation (FFF) asked for the goal to counted again after the officials made what seemed to a mistake. Even though defender Montassar Talbi headed the ball before it got to Atletico Madrid forward Griezmann, the first decision was overturned because Griezmann playing from behind the line.

But there were other problems for France. Instead, they upset about the rules that the VAR had set up for reviewing the goal. But there was a kick-off and a whistle for full-time right after, so there no way a check could made after full-time. If it had full-time right after the goal ruled out, it could have looked at again after full-time.
The FIFA Disciplinary Committee
In response to France’s claim, the England Quarterfinal FIFA World Cup said, “The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has rejected the French Football Association’s protest about the November 30 FIFA World Cup match between Tunisia and France.”
The decision to appeal the goal is strange when you think about how little the outcome of the appeal will affect how Les Bleus do in the competition. It would give them an extra point in the group stages, but neither they nor Tunisia would move up or down in the rankings because of it.
Even though France’s appeal turned down, the country must now turn its attention to the quarterfinals of the World Cup, where it will face England. Didier Deschamps will have high hopes that he can lead his team to back-to-back championships, which would make them only the third team in history to do this.
