In the Group D encounter, Ronald Koeman's Netherlands and Didier Deschamps' France played to a 0-0 draw.

Despite numerous opportunities for both teams at Leipzig Stadium, neither side managed to score, and the match concluded in a 0-0 stalemate.

French star Kylian Mbappe, who broke his nose in the previous match, remained on the bench and did not play.

Offside Decision Sparks Controversy

French star Antoine Griezmann missed two clear chances, while Dutch player Xavi Simons had his 69th-minute goal ruled out for offside.

Simons' disallowed goal was reviewed for about three minutes by VAR, prompting significant protests from the Dutch side.

With this result, both teams now have 4 points and will decide their fate in the final group match.

In the next round of fixtures, France will face group bottom Poland, while the Netherlands will take on the tough opponent Austria.
