Goal-line technology used in France win

Goal-line technology was used for the first time in the World Cup finals as France began their campaign with a dominant win over 10-man Honduras.

The moment occurred in the 48th minute for France's second goal, ruling keeper Noel Valladares to have nudged Karim Benzema's shot over the line.

The Real Madrid forward gave France the lead from the spot after Paul Pogba had been fouled by Wilson Palacios.

Benzema added a late third with a vicious strike from a tight angle.
