‎Nigeria vs. France (Live Updates)

Nigeria seeks to make history at the World Cup.


The Super Eagles at the end of today may join other legendary African teams that have the honour of reaching the quarter finals of the FIFA World Cup.

In that exclusive list for now are the trio of Cameroon, Senegal, and Ghana.

Nigeria is thus seeking to be the fourth team from Africa to make it to the last eight.

To make the historical achievement, the hurdle before the Super Eagles is the French national team who have grown from outsiders to genuine contenders for the top prize in Brazil.
