FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 Highlights France 1-0 Peru June 21 2018

France qualified for the World Cup 2018 knockout stages with Kylian Mbappe‘s strike the difference in a narrow win over Peru.

Mbappe became the youngest player to score for Les Bleus at a World Cup when he ran onto Olivier Giroud‘s deflected shot to tap home into an empty net.

Striker Paolo Guerrero had the best chance for Peru in the 31st after collecting a pass from Christian Cueva but France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris saved his low shot from close range.

Still, France appeared to be the more dangerous team as half-time approached Lucas Hernandez had a shot blocked by goalkeeper Pedro Dallese late in the first half. Earlier, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba missed the target.

Peru started the second half in similar fashion to the first, working the ball well into the final third but failing with the all-important final ball.

Pedro Aquino nearly gave the largely Peru support something to cheer when he let fly from fully 35 yards but his shot hit the outside of Lloris’ goal and spun wide.
