Round of 16 Gambling Predictions
France v Nigeria
Monday, June 30, 2014
9 AM EST
Estádio Nacional de Brasilia, Brasília
ESPN
Odds: France -190 / Nigeria +250 / Draw +280

Nigeria

The Super Eagles were not able to come out on top of a five goal thriller against Argentina, coming out on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline to close out the group stage.

It was Nigeria’s first loss in Brazil after drawing with Iran then winning a key match against Bosnia, 1-0.

It’s not all rosey in the Eagles camp however.  Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has stepped in to assure Stephen Keshi’s Super Eagles squad will be paid their bonus money after players boycotted training in Campinas on Thursday.

What is with these African teams and getting paid before they play? (Ghana) “The President called them this morning to assure them that the sports minister is coming in with their money.”

France

Meanwhile, France came out on top of group E with a fair degree of ease, openining the tournamanrt with wins over Honduras (3-0) and Switzerland (5-2) before wrapping up qualification with a 0-0 draw against Ecuador.

Didier Deschamps’ side are now among the favourites for the World Cup and if they become champions he will be only the third person to win the tournament as a player and a coach.

France struggled against Ecuador, as coach Didier Deschamps made six changes to his starting XI in preperation from the round of 16.

The side’s been most impressive, and their match against the Swiss has already done enough to erase the memory of a disastrous World Cup 2010 finals in South Africa.

Looking to avenge their 2006 loss as World Cup runner up finalists, France will aim to deliver one of the final blows to the African nations who have only two teams remaining in the tournament after the Ivory Coast’s early exit.

Nigeria will need to be at its best against France, which beat them in the two side’s most recent head to head — a friendly international in June 2009 that saw Nigeria walk away with a 1-0 victory.

World Cup Round of 16 Prediction – France –

This is going to be a really tough test for the Super Eagles, but one they might be able to come out on top of. France are a team where everyone is now pulling in the same direction and a squad packed with quality and experience.

Nigeria has been getting significantly better since their AFCON 2013 matches, peaking in the knockout rounds with a win over fellow countrymen, the Ivory Coast, on their way to lifting the tournament trophy.

I expect this match to be one of the better and most closely contested of the round of 16, with the teams emerging from a half time draw, before France advances, 1-0.
