Both France and Peru will play their second match in the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage in the Yekaterinburg Arena at 1600 hours. France may not have played that well in their first game but they did manage to score 3 points of that game despite being underwhelming against Socceroos. The Australia outplayed themselves and they did held the game till the 80th minute but the a shot from Paul Pogba got deflected and found the back of the Australian net and the Aussies had to settle for a defeat in that game. But this was one France’s great start to a major tournament as they failed to win their opening matches in a major tournament in five out of seven times and as the tournament progresses it is believed that Les Blues will find their way in the tournament. All hope for Peru is lost for the World Cup and it is tragic as they made the world cup appearance after 36 years and soon it will come to an end.
