France has retaken the lead against Croatia, 2-1, through an Antoine Griezmann penalty kick.

The decision came minutes after Ivan Perisic was charged with a handball inside his own area following a Blaise Matuidi header, which was only given by the referee after a video replay review.

The goal for Griezmann is his fourth of the World Cup, putting him two behind England’s Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race.
