France reaches World Cup dream with 2-0 win over Nigeria

France reaches World Cup dream with 2-0 win over Nigeria

France star player, Paul Pogba scored with a late header and Joseph Yobo added an own-goal as France won 2-0 to reach the World Cup quarterfinals on Monday.

Pogba scored when goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama tried to punch a corner kick but flipped it toward the Frenchman, who headed it into the unoccupied goal at the right time.

In injury time, Yobo turned the ball into his own goal with his knee by mistakenly.

France had the best chance of the first half with Pogba hitting his shot right at Enyeama, who pushed it away.

Earlier in the opening half, Emmanuel Emenike put the ball into the net, but was judged to be offside.
