France soars over Super Eagles

Brasilia: A Paul Pogba header and a Joseph Yobo own goal under pressure from substitute Antoine Griezmann in injury time saw Les Bleus win 2-0 over battling Nigeria to reach the World Cup quarter-finals. It was heart-break time for Vincent ‘the Cat’ Enyeama, whose stunning reflexes drew applause from the 67,882 fans in Estadio Nacionale. African champions Nigeria are yet to make the last 8 at a World Cup, following this defeat in their first knockout-phase match at the tournament since France 1998. While France made 6 changes, Nigeria brought in Victor Moses. Nigeria took a blow when midfielder Ogenyi Onazi had to be stretchered off after an ugly, ankle-high challenge by Blaise Matuidi.
