This was the second game in group C for both teams. Earlier, France managed to defeat 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.
In 34th minute, 19-year-old Kylian Mbappé broke the match open, becoming the youngest player to score for France in a World Cup tournament. Peru failed to strike back during the first half of the game and, despite all their effort, in the second half as well.

After the game, the situation in group C became less misty, as France has secured a place in the knockout stage regardless of the outcome in its upcoming match against Denmark, while team Peru has lost any hope of advancement.
Now the destiny of teams Denmark and Australia depends on their last games, against France and Peru respectively. If Australia wins and Denmark loses, the goal difference will decide which will enter the knockout stage.
