World Cup 2018 in Russia has been a campaign of upsets so far. Heavyweights Spain, Brazil and Argentina were held to a draw whereas reigning champions Germany suffered a shocking defeat to exquisite Mexico. Amidst all these, France are ready to take on Peru on the second match of the day at the Central Stadium in Ekaterinburg.

France edged passed Australia in their opening match of the World Cup. The 2016 Euro Runners Up did not look convincing enough in their opening match and it took an own goal from the Southerners to ensure 3 points for the 1998 World Champions. Peru on the other hand looked very impressive against Denmark, despite losing to a Yusuf Poulssen goal.

It will be a tricky trip for the French as the sturdy South Americans will look to give a last ditch killer blow in a bid to save their World Cup dreams alive.

France vs Peru Injury and Suspension Update:
