Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Nabil Fekir and Olivier Giroud are all proven goalscorers at the highest level, and the 1998 World Cup winners could run all over Peru if they don't keep things tight at the back.

Les Bleus did start with a 4-3-3 formation in their World Cup opener against Australia, and were able to secure a 2-1 win.

It could be a definitive match if Denmark beats Australia on Thursday.

However, Peru defender Luis Advincula is optimistic that a win is possible against France's strong squad. Meanwhile for Peru, Paolo Guerrero likely starts to give this team a spark from the beginning, as it's now do or die time.

Manager Ricardo Gareca has some fine players at his disposal, and Peru boast attacking flair in abundance in the shape of Edison Flores, Andre Carrillo and talismanic striker Paolo Guerrero.

France can book their place in the knockout stages if they beat Peru on Thursday and Hugo Lloris wants his team-mates to go "beyond their capacity" in Russian Federation. "There are no favourites in this World Cup, it's been shown".

'Even if we change the team completely now, if we play with the same attitude and the same intensity then we will have problems, ' Khedira told reporters.

Questions were raised after the victory and France centre-back Varane knows Didier Deschamps' men will have to be at their best against Peru in Ekaterinburg on Thursday. "Our greatest confidence is knowing that we play good football, and we can match any team".

France and Peru's only previous encounter was a friendly in April 1982.

Peru are winless in their last seven World Cup matches (D2, L5).

After consecutive defeats against Mexico and South Africa in 2010, France are unbeaten in their last four group stage games in World Cup finals (W3, D1, L0).

Having become France's youngest ever player in a major tournament in their opening match, Kylian Mbappé is also looking to become their youngest ever goalscorer in a World Cup or European Championships, with David Trezeguet vs Saudi Arabia in 1998 now holding the record (20y 246d).

Peru were unlucky not to get a point against Denmark, losing 1-0.
