Both teams enjoyed good periods throughout the match and were outplayed by France only in the final quarter-hour of the first half. At 34′ minute the scoring opportunity cam up. 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.

“We thank the Peruvian fans so much for the great support in Russia. We left everything on the field against two very tough opponents. But this does not end here, we are going to close the World Cup with the same attitude.” – Pedro Gallese, Peru Coach

Evenafter a fighted effort, 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.

For France, they did the job that was required to qualify for the second round. Two matches, two victories and an ultimately satisfying performance, as well as an overall improvement on their first match. Didier Deschamps’s pre-match tactical switches paid dividends.
