France seal last-16 spot as Mbappe earns victory over Peru

World Cup 2018 France Vow To Up The Ante As Rivals Flounder

France booked their ticket for the round of 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Thursday with a 1-0 win over Peru in Group C. Kylian Mbappe scored the only goal in the first half.

Guerrero had been introduced as a second-half substitute in the loss to the Danes and clearly impressed sufficiently to earn a place in the team against France.

Monaco's Mbappe was the player to punish the Peruvians when he tapped in Olivier Giroud's deflected shot, coming after a period of France dominance.

The goal was made by Paul Pogba, who dispossessed Paolo Guerrero 20 yards outside the Peru penalty area before releasing Giroud to shoot.

France come into this game on the back of a narrow 2-1 victory over Australia.

Ronaldo will need to continue his fine form when his side take on Iran in their final group game on Monday, Fernando Santos' men needing at least a draw to progress. Backed by more than 25,000 fans in Ekaterinburg, the South Americans struggled to test goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on his 100th appearance for France.

Mbappe makes things happen and is also prepared to try the spectacular. He'll have to pick himself up to avenge that moment, he's a crucial part of the team.

As good as Dembele is, Mbappe just seems to have the edge in terms of maturity. So far they haven't, and with Deschamps' insistence on changing things up, it's unlikely that will change in the knockout stages.

Asked if Peru, contesting their first World Cup since 1982, could rival the French in any department, Gareca was unusually honest.

However, Peru were unable to find a way through and Ricardo Gareca's side - who have yet to find the net in Russian Federation - are certain to be knocked out. Like Australia, they have relied on athleticism and intensity in this tournament, and they have even less to show for it than the Socceroos.
