England vs France final score, result: Harry Kane misses late penalty as holders reach semifinals – Sporting News

Reigning champions France reached the 2022 FIFA World Cup semifinals at the expense of England in a compelling quarterfinal decided by Olivier Giroud’s close-range header and Harry Kane’s penalty miss at the Al Bayt Stadium.
Kane blazed a penalty over the crossbar six minutes from time to ensure England would not level for a second time, after the Tottenham striker had matched Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England to draw his side level in the second half.
Aurelien Tchouameni gave France the lead with a 25-yard strike that dipped beyond Jordan Pickford’s dive in the 17th minute.
France had the better of the opening stages but were indebted to goalkeeper Hugo Lloris — earning a record 143rd cap for his country’s senior men’s team — when he clawed a powerful long-range drive from Kane around a post to keep his side in front.

Jude Bellingham’s stinging attempt was tipped over the crossbar by Lloris, and England goalkeeper Pickford kept out a Giroud volley from close range as the sides traded chances during the second half.
Three-time Premier League Golden Boot winner Kane became the first player to both score and miss a penalty in a World Cup match since Michal Bilek for Czechoslovakia against USA in 1990.
France will return to the same setting to meet Morocco in the semifinals on Wednesday, while 2018 semifinalists England’s first defeat in Qatar means they are out, despite a commendable overall performance.
France or Morocco will meet Argentina or Croatia, who play on Tuesday, in the final on December 18.

Hugo Lloris flaps a cross from the left behind. England have a corner on their right. Eight minutes of added time are being played.
88 mins: England 1-2 France
Mason Mount steps up to take an England free-kick just inside the France half on the right. Harry Maguire wants another free-kick but the referee is having none of it.
France are closing in on victory thanks to that Olivier Giroud header.
84 mins: England 1-2 France
Harry Kane blasts the penalty high over the crossbar! The captain put that to the same side – Hugo Lloris’ left – as he did his first penalty, but there was more chance of it clearing the stadium than rippling the net.
England fans are in tears in the stands. Marcus Rashford comes on in place of Phil Foden, looking suitably stern.
82 mins: England 1-2 France
Penalty to England! Harry Kane steps up again. How are your nerves, England fans?
81 mins: England 1-2 France
The referee heads to the monitor after Mason Mount is barged in the back inside the penalty area by Theo Hernandez.
GOAL – England 1-2 France (Olivier Giroud 78 mins)
Olivier Giroud heads France back in front! Antoine Griezmann sends a cross towards the near post from the left, where Giroud beats Harry Maguire to the ball and powers a header beyond Jordan Pickford, who had performed a near-miracle in keeping a close-range volley from the former Chelsea forward out a minute earlier.
74 mins: England 1-1 France Jude Bellingham wants a penalty after a tangle with Dayo Upamecano inside the penalty area. Nothing doing — and it didn’t look likely.
71 mins: England 1-1 France Excellent work by Theo Hernandez, who’s had the unenviable task of trying to thwart Bukayo Saka tonight.
Luke Shaw works his way down the right and floats a cross onto a steam train of a run by Saka inside the penalty area. Hernandez appears to deflect it behind but France are given a goal-kick. 
69 mins: England 1-1 France Bukayo Saka is fouled in a dangerous position for France on England’s right.
Jordan Henderson curls an inviting free-kick towards the far post, where Harry Maguire arrives to arc a header against the outside of Hugo Lloris’ right-hand post!
66 mins: England 1-1 France Bukayo Saka and Olivier Giroud are both on the turf in discomfort at opposite ends of the pitch.
The France striker tried and failed to reach an overhit pass on the byline inside of the penalty area, and it looks like he’s just about escaped over-stretching with both hamstrings intact.
Saka feels he should have had a free-kick for a challenge by Adrien Rabiot.
62 mins: England 1-1 France
We said earlier that Antoine Griezmann was the unlikely recipient of the first yellow card of the match, and he produces another foul — sending Phil Foden to the turf in robust fashion — which would almost certainly have elicited a booking, had he not already been cautioned.
One of those incidents where you can understand why the referee was reluctant to produce a red card, although this official has not had the best of games so far.
61 mins: England 1-1 France
Harry Kane repeats the trick, belying his brilliance in front of goal by providing Hugo Lloris with as easy a save as he’ll make all night, having had the ball at his feet in space inside the penalty area.
60 mins: England 1-1 France
Bukayo Saka is playing a scintillating part in this match right now. This time he has a sight of goal inside the penalty area on the right again, only to tamely prod his shot into Hugo Lloris’ path.
59 mins: England 1-1 France
A subdued response to that goal from England fans in Leeds..

56 mins: England 1-1 France
Kylian Mbappe, as usual, is in a rush. This time he beats Kyle Walker to telling effect down the left for the first time in this game, reaching the byline inside the penalty area and clipping a cross back in front of goal which France cannot score from.
End-to-end entertainment. That England goal has turned the tempo up.
55 mins: England 1-1 France
France fight back. Adrien Rabiot surges down the left and fires a low early shot towards the far corner of Jordan Pickford’s net, forcing the goalkeeper to plunge and claw the effort away.
England head coach Gareth Southgate points at his temples in that familiar way managers do, urging his team to concentrate amid their joy at levelling the score.
54 mins: GOAL – England 1-1 France (Harry Kane 54)
Perfect penalty! Harry Kane fires his spot-kick to Hugo Lloris’ left, giving the goalkeeper no chance. As you were!
52 mins: England 0-1 France
Penalty to England! The Three Lions have a couple of good chances before Bukayo Saka bustles into the box on the right, then is clipped by Aurelien Tchouameni.
Harry Kane puts the ball down. Tottenham teammate Hugo Lloris, who’s been solid for France in goal so far, knows him so well…
50 mins: England 0-1 France
Jordan Henderson has his head in his hands as he’s booked for an innocuous foul on France’s left, giving them a chance to send in a free-kick from a position near the corner flag.
Harry Kane heads the delivery clear and an offside call gifts them a free-kick.
48 mins: England 0-1 France
England have a corner on the right following that save by Hugo Lloris. The goalkeeper gathers at the second attempt after Harry Maguire can’t make clean contact at the far post.
47 mins: England 0-1 France
France shouldn’t have wound up Jude Bellingham! The corner from the left eventually falls to the Borussia Dortmund midfielder on the edge of the penalty area in a central position, crashing in a beautiful strike with his right foot that Hugo Lloris does excellently to tip over the crossbar.
46 mins: England 0-1 France
England restart the action. They have 45 minutes to save their World Cup campaign, and France immediately resume their press as they bid to move two games away from a successful title defence.
Phil Foden whips a ball into the box from the right. It’s cleared, and the action stops as Ousmane Dembele is booked for a nasty foul on Jude Bellingham that leaves the midfielder in pain.
England 0-1 France
“He’s nibbling, he’s nibbling, he’s nibbling – and he’s kicked him,” former England defender Gary Neville says of Dayot Upamecano’s challenge on Bukayo Saka as France threaded passes together immediately before scoring.
“It’s very difficult to see that not given, especially with what they give fouls for in the current climate,” adds ex-Three Lions striker Ian Wright, while former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane agrees with them. Keane also feels that Harry Kane should have been awarded a penalty.
HALFTIME: England 0-1 France
An even first half comes to a close! England have had 60 percent of the possession and five of the eight attempts on goal, finding themselves behind to a wonderful long-range strike from Aurelien Tchouameni during an opening 20 minutes in which France had more of the play inside the final third.
There’s a debate going on over whether there was a foul on Bukayo Saka in the build-up to France’s goal, but they were allowed to play passes around comfortably and find ample space, so the French will feel they made their own luck, if that’s what you could call the decision.
France have now stopped their opponents from scoring a first-half goal in four of their five games at this World Cup.
45 mins +3: Phil Foden swings a corner from the left towards Harry Maguire in the centre of the penalty area in what is likely to be the last chance of the half.
The defender jumps but can’t connect with the ball. Jude Bellingham then concedes a foul on the opposite flank against Theo Hernandez, who goes down in apparent pain.
45 mins +1: There will be four minutes of added time.
A post shared by England football team (@england)
45 mins: Jude Bellingham manages to find a slither of space and send a low cross from near the corner flag on the left towards Harry Kane, who cuts a lonely opposition figure inside the France penalty area.
That summarises how England have lacked bodies in the area where it really matters during this half so far.
42 mins: England 0-1 France
Antoine Griezmann has been guilty of a succession of fouls in this half, and he pays the price for his latest one.
The forward goes into the book for bringing down Kyle Walker. Fair play to any punters who had Griezmann as the unlikely first candidate for a caution.
40 mins: England 0-1 France
It’s been a while since either side had a real chance of note, although a player of Kylian Mbappe’s stratospheric ability would have considered that sight of goal two minutes ago a splendid opportunity.
England have been bright and probing inside the final third. This time France clear again as Harry Kane tries to find a way through.
38 mins: England 0-1 France
Antoine Griezmann takes a free-kick inside the England half on the left, sending it short in an attempt to spring a surprise.
The ploy doesn’t work effectively but, from the ensuing sequence, the ball falls kindly for Kylian Mbappe inside the penalty area to the left. The tournament top scorer swings his shot high into the stands.
36 mins: England 0-1 France
The broadcasters are showing replays of that opening goal. It was a terrific strike from Aurelien Tchouameni, hit at knee height before veering and dipping away from Jordan Pickford’s dive.
It would be interesting to know the speed that one was struck at. Pickford had precious little chance of stopping it.
34 mins: England 0-1 France
One for the collectors: Jude Bellingham passes up possession, allowing Kylian Mbappe to attempt a dangerous run. The reliably energetic midfielder swiftly backtracks and atones for his mistake.
32 mins: England 0-1 France
France fans won’t have enjoyed a moment of panic in front of their goalline. Phil Foden swings a corner under the crossbar from the left, where several England players cannot connect cleanly enough to nudge the ball over the line.
Their opponents eventually scramble clear, but England have been the better side since that goal.
29 mins: England 0-1 France
Harry Kane doesn’t surge into the penalty area from that right channel this time. Instead, he thunders a shot towards the near post, where Tottenham teammate and close friend Hugo Lloris springs into action to parry the effort around a post via a deflection.
Good save!
27 mins: England 0-1 France
Bravo, Aurelien!

No penalty! There was a bit of contention over whether that would have resulted in a spot-kick anyway, as it wasn’t clear whether it was just outside the penalty area or not.
Former Premier League referee Peter Walton, who’s on analysis duties for ITV in the UK, reckons it was a foul. Relief for France!
25 mins: England 0-1 France
(Probably) the first VAR check of the game – and it’s potentially a massive one. Harry Kane arrows into the penalty area from the right once again and clashes with Dayot Upamecano, tumbling to the turf.
Kane is adamant that he was fouled and the referee is awaiting advice from on high…
23 mins: England 0-1 France
Better from England. Bukayo Saka finds Harry Kane on the right, who enters the penalty area and is thwarted by the advancing Hugo Lloris.
The captain has another sight of goal in the ensuing move from the rebound but cannot threaten Lloris to telling effect.
21 mins: England 0-1 France
England have a chance to hit back quickly, Adrien Rabiot bringing down Bukayo Saka just outside the penalty area on England’s right.
The watching David Beckham would love this opportunity but Luke Shaw does less with it than the former England captain would have expected to in his prime, curling it straight into the grateful Hugo Lloris’s arms.
18 mins: England 0-1 France
That looked easy for France. Dayot Upamecano dispossessed Bukayo Saka to begin an attack down the left, the reigning champions exchanging passes in space on the fringes of the penalty area and being afforded plenty of space.
Kylian Mbappe looks up on the right and pings a pass to Ousmane Dembele, who provides Antoine Griezmann with the chance to supply Aurelien Tchouameni.
The midfielder then cracks a marvellous low shot from the right of centre into the far corner of the net, beating Jordan Pickford’s drive with the pace on the shot at 25 yards’ distance. One for the highlights reel!
GOAL – England 0-1 France (Aurelien Tchouameni, 17)
France have had the better of the early stages and now they have the lead!
15 mins: England 0-0 France
The sides exchange promising attacks, England going first when Declan Rice gains possession on the halfway line and tries to play Harry Kane in with a low pass to the right of centre.
Jordan Henderson then gives the ball away, allowing Adrien Rabiot to speed away down the right. Kylian Mbappe tries to locate Ousmane Dembele with a cross but it goes behind.

More signs of promise for France down the right, where Ousmane Dembele sends a cross onto the head of Olivier Giroud in the middle of the penalty area, who arches his neck back and plants a header into the turf.
It’s an easy claim for Jordan Pickford in the centre of his goal, and England breathe another sigh of relief after absorbing another attack.
9 mins: England 0-0 France
Nervy moments for England: Ousmane Dembele scampers down the right and whips a useful cross towards Antoine Griezmann, who’s denied the opportunity by an alert Stones clearance.
Griezmann then turns provider from the same flank, winning a corner off Jude Bellingham which the Atletico Madrid forward takes. Harry Maguire heads clear.
8 mins: England 0-0 France
England regain possession. Harry Maguire attempts a diagonal ball from near the halfway line towards Saka on the right, failing to find his range accurately enough to avoid the delivery bouncing out for a goal kick.
Both sides will take encouragement from this start. It’s been lively.
7 mins: England 0-0 France
Kylian Mbappe lofts a cross into the right-hand side of the England penalty area from just outside the box in a central position.
Olivier Giroud shows he’s in the mood by attempting a scorpion kick but doesn’t connect. England concede a throw-in deep inside their own territory on the same side.
6 mins: England 0-0 France
England have the best chance of the game so far after Phil Foden is bundled over by the touchline on their left.
Luke Shaw swings the resulting cross towards the far post from a position beyond the midway point of the France half. Les Bleus head clear and a flag is raised.
3 mins: England 0-0 France
Now England attack, Bukayo Saka advancing through the centre towards the penalty area. The Arsenal livewire tries to lay a low pass off towards Harry Kane, and France clear.
2 mins: England 0-0 France
There’s a buzz of anticipation as Kylian Mbappe gets on the ball for the first time, finding himself crowded out by a clutch of England players. No way through — yet.

1 hr from kickoff: England and France both name unchanged sides! “We feel we’ve got to put the pressure on France and get a player up the pitch with our attacking play,” Gareth Southgate says of his midfield, speaking to ITV.
“On these big nights, you’ve got to stand up and go to the depths. This will be a huge test of that but it’s great to be coming to this game feeling the way we do. These are nights where everyone remembers where they were.”
1 hr 30 mins from kickoff: Former Liverpool and Scotland midfielder Graeme Souness says Harry Kane is key. The Tottenham talisman has not quite hit the heights Mbappe has at these finals so far.
“If he turns up tonight, I make them slight favourites,” says Souness, who appears to be wearing a fetching maroon jacket in the ITV studio.
2 hrs from kickoff: In the earlier kickoff tonight, Morocco have produced another sensational result. They have beaten Portugal and ended Cristiano Ronaldo’s fifth World Cup finals tournament in the process.
They’ll now meet England or France in the semifinals. Read all about it!
3 hrs from kickoff: France are unbeaten in the 13 games in which Kylian Mbappe has started in the World Cup and European Championships combined, drawing three of them and winning all nine in which he has started at the World Cup.
Mbappe has been directly involved in 12 goals in those starts, scoring nine and providing three assists.
3 hrs 15 mins from kickoff: Harry Kane has scored 52 goals for England in all competitions, just one short of Wayne Rooney’s all-time record.
Of those, 11 have been scored in major tournaments (seven at the World Cup, four at UEFA EURO) – a record for the Three Lions, ahead of Gary Lineker (10, all at World Cup).
3 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: Swipe or click right on this image to see a review of bygone matches between these countries compiled by Le Figaro.
“Only Belgium (75 matches) have played more matches against France,” they say, calling England “often a nightmare” for France thanks to their 24 wins and six draws from those games.
They point out that France have never beaten England at the World Cup but say that the gap has closed since the Bosman ruling in 1995, which allowed an influx of French players in the Premier League which continues today.

4 hrs 15 mins from kickoff: Olivier Giroud turned 36 in September and has scored three goals for France at this World Cup, with only Kylian Mbappe – leading the field on five – netting more for Les Bleus.
The only player aged over 36 to score more than three times in a single World Cup tournament was Roger Milla for Cameroon in 1990, hitting the net four times goals at the age of 38.

4 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: “England dread Mbappe,” say L’Equipe, accompanying a photo of the suited striker with photos of Harry Kane, Kyle Walker, Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann.
The headline reads “Losing can wait”.

4 hrs 45 mins from kickoff: You can only wonder how much bulletin board material Kyle Walker gave Kylian Mbappe from this one video clip. How about: “[Mbappe] is not going to stand in my way in hopefully winning a World Cup for my country.”
But what might really set off Kylian is the question about who’s quicker. Walker’s response was: “Who knows?”
Kyle Walker when asked (a lot) about his potential battle with Kylian Mbappe:

With every player available, all indications from the English media is that manager Gareth Southgate is expected to name an unchanged lienup from the one that handled Senegal 3-0.
That would mean sticking with a four-man backline to go up against France’s dangerous front four. There was speculation that the Three Lions could be better off with another centre-back to face France’s vaunted attacking line, but that would not seem to be an option under consideration.  
England (4-3-3 right to left): 1. Pickford (GK) — 2. Walker, 5. Stones, 6. Maguire, 3. Shaw — 8. Henderson, 4. Rice, 22. Bellingham — 17. Saka, 9. Kane, 20. Foden
Multiple reports in France say that manager Didier Deschamps will also be repeating the lineup that beat Poland 3-1 in the Round of 16. It aligns with how he managed the squad en route to the title in 2018, sticking to a mix of players that is seemingly working well together. 
France lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1. Lloris (GK) — 5. Kounde, 4. Varane, 18. Upamecano, 22. T. Hernandez — 8. Tchouameni, 14. Rabiot — 11. Dembele, 7. Griezmann, 10. Mbappe — 9. Giroud  
This quarterfinal clash will be played at Al Bayt Stadium. Here’s how you can watch all the action in some of the major global territories.
