Six minutes to play. Can Germany conjure up one more chance?

VAR REVIEW

The referee has indicated a VAR review.

Is this a goal for Karim Benzema? 

No. He is held up to be offside as Mbappe played the ball across the area for him to tap home. More frustration for Mbappe. 

77'

I would not have expected that. Mbappe bursts away to seemingly bear down on goal. Hummels is able to recover, stick out a long foot and win the ball from him. Not many win a foot race with the French attacker. Especially not veteran German central defenders. 

73'

Substitution

Leroy Sané (in) - Kai Havertz (out) (Germany).

73'

Substitution

Timo Werner (in) - Serge Gnabry (out) (Germany).

Change in attack as both Werner and Sane make their first appearance at these finals as Germany try to freshen things up. I expected Emre Can to come on for Ginter but he seems to have recovered. 

70'

Matthias Ginter is down at the moment after an ariel challenge. Looks to be in some pain 

66'

Offside....but what a goal! The ball is played in and Mbappe twists and turns his opponent. Just when you imagine he has been frustrated then he curls a delightful effort past Neuer. The flag goes up as he and Griezmann were both off when the intial ball came in. 

57'

Benjamin Pavard takes one for the team as he challenges Robin Gosens. That looked sore as he hit the ground. 

53'

Brave goalkeeping from Lloris as he dashes out to intercept a ball intended for Gnabry. He collides with the Bayern man but perfectly legal. Germany beginning to carve out opportunities now

52'

Could, and perhaps should, be the equaliser. A cross is floated in and is met by Gnabry. His shot is scuffed into the ground and over the bar. 

51'

A chance for a second. Adrien Rabiot is found is in space inside the area and is poised to shoot. The retreating Kimmich is just about able to nudge him enough to make him smack the outside of the post. 

50'

Germany have yet to really get to grips with the strength and industry of Pogba and N'Golo Kante. 

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between France and Germany has started.

45' + 1'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between France and Germany.

Perhaps the scoreline we might have predicted. Certainly not the scorer however. Mbappe was waiting for the tap-in if the big central defender had left it go. France seem to be the more fluid and dangerous of the two. The German forwards have not had the service required as of yet. A new approach is needed for the German management 

39'

Josh Kimmich has got to be careful. He is on a booking already and looks to have caught Hernandez with a stray boot. Just a free given 

37'

Half-chance for Germany there. Serge Gnabry does well to keep the ball alive into the are and to pick out Ilkay Gundogan. He is unable to keep the ball down under pressure from Pogba 

35'

Mbappe is denied with a decisive block as he aimed to pick out Antoine Greizmann. Fantastic run from the PSG man though. France still looking the more threatening at the moment

26'

Another chance for Kroos. Over the top on this occasion. Someone else might have the take the next one. 

24'

Kroos trys to get Germany back into the game. His free-kick is straight into the wall though

21'

Muller tries his luck from a header but is denied by Hugo Lloris

19'

OWN GOAL!

Mats Hummels (Germany) scores an own-goal!

Disaster for the home-side. Pogba slides it down the line to Hernandez who plays it across the box to the awaiting M'Bappe. The returning Hummels is the unfortunate one to bundle it home. 

16'

Smart save from Manuel Nueur as Kylian M'Bappe has a shot from outside the area. 

15'

Paul Pogba might feel he could have done better there. He rises above Antonio Rudiger from a corner but only manages to connect with his shoulder and put it over the bar. 

12'

Yet to really settle down as the midfield area is so keenly contested between both sides. Poor passing at times it has to be said.

6'

Yellow Card

Joshua Kimmich (Germany) is booked.

Kimmich is the first player booked for coming in late on Lucas Hernandez

3'

Toni Kroos floats in a free-kick into the area. The returning Mats Hummels rises but is unable to keep it down.
