Notes

  1. ^ The official FIFA match report indicates that the first half finished 1:0 for France, but this contradicts the data on the scoring.
  2. ^ The FIFA match report states "Russia" here, which is an anachronism.
  3. ^ a b The official FIFA report accounts no minute for this goal.
  4. ^ The FIFA match report anachronistically states Eritrea.
  5. ^ http://www.popflock.com/video?id=TjaN93fo8VU This video in 43:21 gives a view of the scoreboard at the end of regulation, different of what appears at FIFA report of the match in its website. Also, playing time in this tournament were 2 periods of 40 minutes
