Even the USA obtained within three points at the 64th minute but Baptiste Serin and also Gael Fickou crossed at the space of three minutes.
With all the bonus point secured, Jefferson Poirot included a fifth try on.
France ahead Bernard Le Roux said after his negative thought the match was likely to bea bit easier and they got ahuge surprise in the first half.
They have stuck in and gave us a very difficult time in the breakdowns and we didnt find clean ball, he said.
So it was really tough, especially in the first half, along with the seat did well when they arrived on.
They made a huge difference and we have some go-forward and also our set plays opened play on the outside.
France is moved by the win up to second in Pool C, one stage behind England.
Eddie Jones side ran in seven attempts despite the points that were late, Englands position as staff favorites simply reinforces and, if they beat the US last Thursday.

France gave a look with the overdue points that procured the precious bonus point to the score-line, but for areas of the match they had been hugely disappointing.
Into the USAs four they conceded 10 penalties in total and also conceded 18 turnovers for their opponents 13.
They had been just six points ahead at half-time and when AJ MacGinty kicked a penalty to the USA to move that then there seemed a true likelihood of an upset and his side had the momentum.
But, advantage was taken by France once their opponents tired to follow their victory over Argentina.
There had been flashes of brilliance in the first half particularly, with both tries being made from the boot of Camille Lopez – a chip on the surface and the second an exceptional kick.
Throughout a frustrating period from the opening 20 minutes of the second halfof mistakes stopped Frances advance and also their sloppiness was summed up when an exceptional break by Sofiane Guitoune was spoiled when he passed forward to Raka as soon as the winger had a clear run to the line.
The USA made lots of errors within their own and might have induced France larger difficulties had they made use of great rankings.
USA coach Gary Gold explained:I believed we travelled toe-to-toe. We did make some mistakes but we gave up the struggle.
it is somewhat sad we didnt get a try on the scoreboard, however it was a really, very excellent performance.
