G'Day is basically a tourist film that seems made to cash in on the 'Crocadile Dundee craze. The movie is bookend-ed with short commentary by Linda Kozlowski and then the rest is narrated by an Australian 'mate. In all, the movie is viewed for its background and scenery of Australia. If you don't care much about that country, you probably won't like the movie. Otherwise, it is decent and if it was not a tad dated it would/should get a higher rating.
First stage, Group C, Kazan Arena Kazan, 16 Jun 2018. The third matchday of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia began with the Group C encounter between France and Australia in Kazan. Although Les Bleus made a bright start, stars Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann were unable to capitalise on their chances. The Aussies gained a foothold in the game after the first 15 minutes, with Hugo Lloris palming their best first-half opportunity clear when team-mate Corentin Tolisso threatened to deflect a free-kick into his own net. The action then came thick and fast after the interval. After consulting with the video assistant referees (VAR team), referee Andres Cunha awarded France a penalty that Griezmann coolly converted. Samuel Umtiti then handled the ball in the box just a few minutes later, with Mile Jedinak scoring the resulting spot-kick. Didier Deschamps’ side ultimately turned the match back in their favour, thanks to an own goal from Australia defender Aziz Behich.
