Match: France vs Peru - 6/21/18

Recap

"France needed a lone first-half strike from teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe to edge past Peru and end the South American’s hopes of reaching Russia 2018's Round of 16. France’s all-star side were made to work overtime before subduing a brave Peru in front of a buoyant South American-flavoured crowd.

La Blanquirroja enjoyed good periods throughout the match and were outplayed only in the final quarter-hour of the first half. It was at that point that Mbappe broke the deadlock with a close-range tap-in. It proved enough for France to maintain their lead at the top of Group C and shore up a ticket to the last-16.

Peru can consider themselves unlucky with Paolo Guerrero denied and Pedro Aquino hitting the post. Peru’s campaign is now over after successive 1-0 defeats."

  • France took lead through Kylian Mbappe goal
  • Peru start with star forward Paolo Guerrero
  • The South Americans must earn at least a draw
