Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as France and Peru meet in Group C play at the World Cup.
France may have been fortunate to win its World Cup opener, while Peru was likely a bit unfortunate to not have taken at least a point in its debut. But there’s no time to dwell on the past for the two Group C sides.
France has a chance to secure its place in the knockout stage, while Peru is playing for survival two games into its first World Cup in 36 years. France eked by Australia 2-1 in a game heavily impacted by technology and sits atop the group, three points clear of Peru, which couldn’t find its finishing form in a frustrating 1-0 loss to Denmark.
Thanks to Denmark’s 1-1 draw vs. Australia earlier Thursday, France can secure its place in the round of 16 with a win.
