Arsenal pair play as France progress

Laurent Koscielny played the full 90 minutes as France sealed their place in the World Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over Nigeria on Monday.

The Arsenal centre back was in fine form, and had to be at his best to keep the African side quiet during a well-contested affair in Brasilia.

Fellow Gunner Olivier Giroud was replaced by Antoine Griezmann after 62 minutes after a typically hard-working performance up front.

After a tight first half, Les Bleus upped the ante after the restart and twice went close through Karim Benzema, while Yohan Cabaye hit the bar with a fine strike.

But with 11 minutes remaining, France finally broke the deadlock when the excellent Paul Pogba headed home from a corner.

Then, in injury time, a Joseph Yobo own goal sealed the win for Les Bleus, who will now face Germany.
