Mbappe, 19, became France's youngest scorer at a World Cup, prodding into an empty net on 34 minutes.

Underdogs Peru are capable of beating anyone at the World Cup and will not allow France to bully them in their Group C clash, coach Ricardo Gareca said yesterday. He was free in the system we chose, said Deschamps, referring to France's 4-2-3-1 formation after fielding a 4-3-3 in their 2-1 win against Australia.

Both used their speed and passing to expose gaps in Peru's backline.

Captain Guerrero, starting after seeing a 14-month drug ban frozen to allow him to play in Russian Federation, could have been Peru's hero but his 87th-minute free kick was easy pickings for Lloris as France settled for a one-goal victory.

In particular, he applauded Indigenous senators for raising concerns about the lack of consultation with Aboriginal communities. It sets out parameters around the production, possession, safety standards, distribution, and sale of marijuana.

Asked why he spoke up for Guerrero, Lloris said: "Playing in a World Cup is unique, a very special moment in a career, and this is the case for him".

It wasn't for the lack of trying that France struggled to break down Australia, it just seemed like the team weren't properly balanced.

They continued to press and while Guerrero's free-kick tested Lloris with three minutes left, Peru failed to find an equaliser.

Peru's centre-backs - Alberto Rodriguez and Christian Ramos - often relish moving out into wide areas in the opening game and might have fancied their chances against a Griezmann, Mbappe and Dembele front three.

Kylian Mbappe scored France's victor against Peru. Pogba beat his defender and passed to Olivier Giroud, who then chipped the ball toward goal for Mbappe to easily tap in past goalkeeper Pedro Gallese. And after making its first World Cup appearance in 38 years, the Peruvian squad will head home after the end of the group, coming away empty-handed in the first two matches.

Peru are with zero points, while Denmark are second with four points.

The French tactician brought Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi back into the starting XI after benching them against the Aussies and the pair made an immediate difference, with the Chelsea man involved in the only goal of the game. The chemistry they found as substitutes carried over and it sharpened France's attack.

"I have always said that the World Cup is a dream for any player and it was a dream for me too, it was a dream that came true and I hope there will be more days like this", Mbappe, arguably the best player in the world in his age bracket, said afterwards. But that constant motion ate up a lot of energy and hurt their control as the match progressed.
