France reach quarter-finals

France reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup as Paul Pogba's header and Joseph Yobo's own goal knocked out Nigeria in Brasilia.
Nigeria's Emmanuel Emenike had a first-half goal ruled out for offside before Vincent Enyeama saved Pogba's volley.
Victor Moses cleared Karim Benzema's shot off the line after the break and Yohan Cabaye volleyed against the bar.
Pogba headed home after Enyeama's misjudgement before Yobo diverted Mathieu Valbuena's cross into the net.
France will play the winners of Monday night's match between Algeria and Germany in the quarter-finals.
