Fans who watch France vs. Nigeria live streaming will see a case of a giant take on a much weaker team — on paper at least — but Les Bleus shouldn’t take the Greens lightly. In a World Cup that has been marked by some pleasant surprises such as Colombia and Costa Rica, the underdogs seem to have the upper hand.
Weather conditions will definitely play a role if the Costa Rica vs. Greece match on Sunday was any indication, and that could be and advantage for the Africans. But France is one of the big favorites to win it all and will have to get past the very good Nigerians to make it to the quarterfinals.
France is confident in its ability and is hoping to win in regulation. Avoiding extra time will give them a big advantage, considering two matches on the opposite side of the bracket have already ended in the dreaded penalty kicks, so players are suffering from the effects of the grueling battle.
However, the French shouldn’t be overconfident and must take their rival seriously as their style of play fits perfectly with what Nigeria likes to play against. Watch France vs. Nigeria live streaming, and it is sure to be one of the most exciting games of the second stage in the World Cup knockout phase.
Of course, Nigeria will be looking to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in their history and upset one of the big guns of this 2014 World Cup. They entered World Cup competition in 1994, finishing first in their group and had a repeat performance in 1998, but 2010 proved to be a different story.
After a poor showing in the 2010 World Cup, Nigeria’s president suspended the national football team from international competition for two years. This is a great opportunity for the Super Eagles to show they have come a long way as they are the current Africa Cup of Nations champions.
Watch France vs. Nigeria football live streaming to see if Karim Benzema and Mathieu Valbuena can continue their heroics of the groups stage and break Nigeria’s defense. There is one previous head to head between France and Nigeria, which the Africans won 1-0.
France will have it’s hands full battling Nigeria, but Les Bleus are one of the most consistent and effective strategic teams of the World Cup.
