Chelsea man starts for France in Peru showdown

Chelsea man starts for France in Peru showdown

Guerrero had been introduced as a second-half substitute in the loss to the Danes and clearly impressed sufficiently to earn a place in the team against France.

The goal was made by Paul Pogba, who dispossessed Paolo Guerrero 20 yards outside the Peru penalty area before releasing Giroud to shoot.

The 21-year-old Barcelona man Dembele pays the price for making little impact in France's stuttering 2-1 victory over Australia in their opener.

Peru will nearly certainly need to score to take anything from Thursday's clash, at it seems unlikely they will be able to keep France's menacing forwards at bay.

Lloris is well aware of the threat their South American opponents pose.




For Peru, Jefferson Farfan and Renato Tapia are pushed to the bench, with Pedro Aquino coming in. Instead, Australia put up an fantastic fight and the French were lucky to escape with a 2-1 win. Both Dembele and Mbappe possess blistering pace and the ability to decide a game but, when push came to shove, Deschamps chose to stick with the teenager. He'll have to pick himself up to avenge that moment, he's a crucial part of the team.

If points were awarded for a nation's fans, they would have coasted into the knockout stage as group winners thanks to the incredible travelling support they have mustered; Peruvians have been everywhere and this fixture was like a home game in Lima, such were the number of flags, shirts and banners on display.

France gets through to the round of 16 while Peru goes home early as the Europeans finally show what they can do when they have creativity in attack after Didier Deschamps changes up the squad.

Asked if Peru, contesting their first World Cup since 1982, could rival the French in any department, Gareca was unusually honest.
