France into World Cup knockout stage after beating Peru

Argentina’s forward Lionel Messi reacts after Croatia scored their third

France's forward Kylian Mbappe (C) celebrates with teammates during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group C football match between France and Peru at the Ekaterinburg Arena in Ekaterinburg on June 21, 2018.

They'll look to continue to build upon that as they battle Australia, who lost a 2-1 decision to group favorite France on Saturday. The teenager usurps David Trezeguet as Les Bleus' youngest scorer at a major tournament, the former Juventus striker having held the record for 20 years thanks to a goal against Saudi Arabia at the 1998 World Cup when he was 20.

The win means France sit top of Group C going into the final group stage game while minnows Peru were eliminated from the competition.

In contrast, Peru meets Australia with its fate sealed and just pride to play for in front of its passionate and large following that has visited Russian Federation. After 15 minutes, Pogba and France began to impose themselves. Peru's best outlet in the first half was rampaging full-back Luis Advincula, who had the beating of defender Lucas Hernandez down France's left flank. The French skipper, making his 100th appearance for his country, was a bystander for long periods.

On 34 minutes France went in front.

As in the first half, Peru made the better start to the second and midfielder Pedro Aquino arrowed a long-distance rocket onto Lloris's upright.

While Peru play a crucial World Cup game against France in Ekaterinburg, social media has shown fans 14,000km away at home bringing city streets to a standstill.

Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti was imperious alongside Real Madrid's Varane.
