With holders Germany losing to Mexico and Spain, Argentina and Brazil all drawing their opening games, the Peru clash is a prime opportunity for the French to stake their claim as the team to beat in Russian Federation.
"We know how important N'Golo is, and he did a great job here". "We know what direction we need to go in".
Pogba beat his defender and passed to Olivier Giroud, who then chipped the ball toward goal for Mbappe to easily tap in past goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.
France responded when, following a neat build-up, Mbappe tried to feed Antoine Griezmann inside the area but the pass was cut out.
France also scraped past Australia in their opener and despite his team's stuttering start Deschamps is content.
Blaise Matuidi, who instantly brought steel to the midfield when he replaced Corentin Tolisso in the opening match, is likely to get the nod over the Bayern Munich man. Against France it will be hard to carve out as many chances as they did against the Danes, but Peru need to keep that positive mindset going once more and hope that this time it pays dividends.
Mbappe scored the only goal of the game in France's 1-0 victory on Thursday, as Deschamps' side confirmed their place in the knockout stages as group winners, and eliminated Peru in the process. "We will need to be aggressive and solid".

Dani Carvajal returns to Spain lineup against Iran
Diego Costa was the star against Portugal with a brace, but Iran are likely to be rather more compact than the European champions. Spain had to contend with more than just a well-drilled and fierce team of opponents - they were also playing against the crowd.
"This aided with the recovering of the ball in the first half - less so in the second half".
Though their World Cup winless run extended to eight matches with defeat against 1998 world champions France, the Peruvians were the superior team in the second half especially and had opportunities to level.
"I have always said that the World Cup is a dream for any player and it was a dream for me too, it was a dream that came true and I hope there will be more days like this", Mbappe, arguably the best player in the world in his age bracket, said afterwards.
"We remained focused, even if Peru did their best to unsettle us - to be honest, it was like playing away from home and it was actually nice".
With two wins from two matches in Group C, France is through to the next round with a match to spare.
Australia coach Bert van Marwijk is ready for different challenge. "I'm very happy with his performance today", Deschamps said. And they did with lethal impact, five minutes later.
The skipper and main man Paolo Guerrero started the opening game on the bench, but, after a return from a drug ban, the manager Ricardo Gareca is hopeful the striker will be ready to start.
