France continued their impressive run at the Russia 2018 World Cup as Les Bleues recorded a slim 1-0 win over Peru.

It was quite an entertaining fixture between both sides as they showed lots energy in the early exchanges of the match.

Antoine Griezmann had the first chance of the match as his shot went off target but in a couple a minutes he forced an unusual saved by the Peru's goalkeeper who saved his shot with his knees.

Les Bleues began to gain momentum as Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane flashed his header across the post from a corner kick.

The only serious threat Peru in the half fell into the path of the star man, Paolo Guerrero, whose shot was expertly dealt with by Hugo Loris.

Then, 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring after he took advantage of Olivier Giroud's shot that rebounded into his path for an easy tap-in.

A collection of passes from Mbappe to N'Golo Kante, then to Griezmann, who lays it for Hernandez as he forces a fine save from the keeper in quick succession.

France went into the half time break the better side as they showed their superior footballing power over the South Americans.

Peru were the better side in the second half as they took the game to Didier Deschamps side but they could not find a way past the French defence.
