Group C should be a straight fight for second place between Australia, Peru, and Denmark with France supposedly far superior to their opponents.
Let’s have an insight to France and Peru.
France – Definitely favourites to go far in Russia with a talented and experienced group but there are question marks on the tactical capabilities of the manager. If Paul Pogba plays to his potential, then Les Bleus should be a match for the best teams in Russia.
Average Age: 26
Total number of Caps: 582
FIFA Ranking: 7
Manager: Didier Deschamps 
Three best players: Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane
Greatest Display: Won the 1998 tournament on home soil
Nickname: Les Bleus (The Blues)
Conclusion: Speed in attack through Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele is a great feature of this team combined with the scoring talent of Antoine Griezmann can see them to the semifinal. If luck and VAR stay on France’s side, they could win the trophy for the second time.
Peru – The reinstatement of their captain and talisman, Paolo Guerrero gives them a fighting chance in a very technical group. Friendly victories over Iceland and Croatia have shown they will be credible opponents in Russia.
Average Age: 27.4
FIFA Ranking: 11
Manager: Ricardo Gareca 
Three best players: Paolo Guerrero, Jefferson Farfan, Edison Flores
Nickname: Los Incas
Conclusion: The first match against Denmark will go a long way to determine whether they will make the second round. Their manager, Gareca has said his team will not just partake but compete in Russia.
