Last Saturday, addressing the upcoming game, Peru striker Jose Paolo Guerrero said that his team could beat France. Last time the teams played against one another in 1982, and on that occasion Peru was victorious.
This is the second game in Group C for both teams. Earlier, France managed to win over Australia 2-1, while Peru lost to Denmark 0-1.
However, after Denmark and Australia drew a tie 1-1 earlier in the day in Samara, it is unclear which teams will enter the knockout stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
According to the statistics, more than 31,800 fans visited the game in Yekaterinburg.
On 34th minute 19-years-old Kylian Mbappé broke the match open, becoming the youngest player to score for France in world cup tournaments. Peru failed to strike back during the first time, and, despite all the struggle — in the second time as well.
After the game situation in the Group C became less misty, as France books its place in the knockout stage regardless of upcoming match against Denmark, while Peru team lays aside all hopes for the advancement.
Now the destiny of Denmark and Australia teams depends on their last games, against France and Peru respectively. If Australia wins and Denmark loses, the goal difference to decide, who would enter the knockout stage.
