The Super Eagles will seek to make history by reaching record set by other African teams at the FIFA World Cup when the team clashes with France today in Brasilia in a must-win to progress tie.

Eagles will be banking on Turkey based Emmanuel Emenike to trouble the defence line of France, with Ahmed Musa and Osaze Odemwingie as top strikers the African champions will also be relying on.

Nigeria's defenders, Joseph Yobo and Omeruo will be keeping the desperate France goal poachers Pogba, Kocielny and Maituidi at bay in a match that Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is expected to play a crucial role.

Ahead of the match, media officer of the Super Eagles informed that the mood of the players in camp is good.

This is coming on the heels of bonus rows that rocked the camp.

LEADERSHIP Sports gathered however, that the Minister of Sports Tammy Danagogo arrived Brazil yesterday with cash to settle the bonus rows.

Many Nigerians would be looking forward to seeing the Eagles do the nation proud and advance to the quarter-final.
