French manager Didier Deschamps made a decision to tinker with his lineup yet again, opting to play central midfielder Blaise Matuidi in a wide role while Ousmane Dembele stayed on the bench.
"They have excellent players up front, they have some very fast players", he said, singling out Paolo Guerrero and Jefferson Farfan. France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was one of three opposing captains, along with Australia's Mile Jedinak and Denmark's Simon Kjaer, who signed a letter to Federation Internationale de Football Association supporting the lifting of the ban.
The Chelsea striker came on as a substitute in the opening game against Australia and has been elevated to the starting XI at the expense of Ousmane Dembele for the game against Los Incas, where he will be partnered in attack by Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe.

The audience "gasped with delight" at the unexpected poke at Barr, whose show was abruptly cancelled after she tweeted a racist remark last month, Deadline reports.
But it was midfielder Paul Pogba who opened things up for Mbappe's goal.
Energized by the tens of thousands of Peruvian fans, the South Americans tried to match Les Bleus' intensity early but were outshot 12-10 with only two of Peru's chances on target, with two others blocked.
Too often, Pogba tries to do too much, both for France and Manchester United.
France will meet Denmark and Peru will close out against Australia on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET.

It was the right call, not only because Mbappe surpassed David Trezeguet as France's youngest World Cup goalscorer at 19 years and 183 days, but because the Paris Saint-Germain youngster tormented Peru down the right flank and worked well with Giroud.
'I think for a defender it's very hard to defend against a player who is always moving and it's easier for a midfield player to find a guy who is always in movement'.
Thursday marked the 100th worldwide appearance for Lloris.
