Teenager Mbappe sends France through as Peru knocked out

The game changer The game changer

At 19 years and 183 days, Mbappe became the youngest scorer in France's World Cup history.

France need to draw their final group game against Denmark next Tuesday to be certain of topping Group C but, with Argentina or Croatia a potential opponent in the next round, Les Bleus will need to raise to their game to be certain of advancing further in Russian Federation.

France was successful in securing three points in its opening round of group play, picking up a 2-1 victory over Australia.

French manager Didier Deschamps made a decision to tinker with his lineup yet again, opting to play central midfielder Blaise Matuidi in a wide role while Ousmane Dembele stayed on the bench.

As well as Guerrero, Pedro Aquino comes into the team, with Renato Tapia making way.

Guerrero, 34, is Peru's all-time top goalscorer but was cleared to play in the tournament only two weeks before it started, when he won a reprieve from a doping ban over a cocaine byproduct contained in a tea he drank.

"Peru are a quality team, a hard team to beat".

After a 36-year wait to return to the World Cup, Peru's Russian adventure will come to an end with their final group game against Australia next week.

Mbappe's first-half strike helped France overcome - and eliminate - a resilient Peru to earn a spot in the knockout round of the World Cup.

Talking Point - Do France have the momentum to go the distance?

France: Lloris, Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Lucas, Pogba, Kante, Mbappe-Lottin, Griezmann, Matuidi, Giroud.

France coach Didier Deschamps will include Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi in his starting XI to face Peru on Thursday in Yekaterinburg.

Benfica's Andre Carrillo, who was on loan at Watford last season, also tested Hugo Lloris' goal with a strike while substitute Jefferson Farfan hooked his effort into the side-netting.

It was a lone goal from Kylian Mbappe that was the difference.
