World Cup: France Beats Nigeria and Enters the Quarter Finals

World Cup: France Beats Nigeria and Enters the Quarter Finals

CNN – When France’s footballers left for Brazil, they were under no illusions… it cannot happen again.

At South Africa 2010, “Les Bleus” became a laughing stock as players and coaches clashed, strikes were threatened and results embarrassed a nation.

Players were suspended, the entire country waged war on a group which had imploded and exited at the group stage after failing to win a single game.

Fast-forward to the present and perhaps, just perhaps, France may get the opportunity to shock the world for all the right reasons.

A 2-0 victory over Nigeria in Brasilia on Monday ensured its progress to the quarter finals and a meeting with Germany, which beat Algeria 2-1 after extra time.

It is a far cry for the disillusionment and disappointment which cast a shadow of French football during its last foray into the World Cup.
