France: France’s performance in group stages was quite impressive. Les Bleus scored 8 goals in its first 2 matches. Didier Deschamps manages a well-balanced and happy squad, which France have not had for many years, even at the cost of individual brilliance. With Karim Benzema in the form of his life, the French can go far.
Nigeria: The African champions - Nigeria have all the fire power to match a side if it manages to stay organised. Nigeria are dangerous on the break with the strength of Emmanuel Emenike and the ruthlessness of Ahmed Musa. Given space they could catch their opponents out.
