France is filing a complaint with FIFA after a last-gasp equalizer by Antoine Griezmann was rejected following a video review after the final whistle of their World Cup match against Tunisia, the French federation said on Wednesday.
Griezmann volleyed home eight minutes into stoppage time, but the goal was disallowed as the striker was offside when Aurelien Tchouameni kicked the ball into the area.

The ball was deflected by a Tunisian defender into the path of Griezmann, who was onside at the time, but the attempt was disallowed and Tunisia won the game 1–0.
“We are writing a complaint after Antoine Griezmann’s goal was, in our opinion, wrongly disallowed. This complaint must be made within 24 hours of the final whistle,” the FFF said in a statement.
Tunisia was eliminated from the tournament, while France top Group D progressed to the last 16 and will face Poland on Sunday.
The FFF did not specify whether the complaint was about the goal itself or whether it was disallowed after the final whistle.
