France scored twice in the last 11 minutes to seal a 2-0 victory over Nigeria on Monday and reach the World Cup quarter-finals.
Nigeria held their own in an even first half but France stepped up the pressure after the break.
Nigeria's Victor Moses cleared a Karim Benzema shot off the line and their goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama made a series of excellent saves before Yohan Cabaye's shot hit the bar.
Enyeama flapped at a Mathieu Valbuena corner in the 79th minute, leaving Paul Pogba an open goal to head into.
France struck again in stoppage time when Nigeria defender Joseph Yobo diverted a cross into his own net.

1/23 France: Hugo Lloris
The Tottenham stopper was always there when his country needed him, producing a string of fine saves. 7
2/23 Mathieu Debuchy
The right-back once again seemed more convincing in attack than when defending. 6
3/23 Patrice Evra
A typically steady performance from the Manchester United left-back. 6
4/23 Raphael Varane
Constantly impressive in the air, but the Real Madrid twice lost concentration with balls played in behind the defence. 7
5/23 Laurent Koscielny
Was kept busy by Emenike, but stood up well to the challenge. 6
6/23 Paul Pogba
A little careless at times, but he was dominant in both defence and attack, eventually breaking the deadlock with a 79th minute header. 8
7/23 Blaise Matuidi
A strong performer in midfield, but blotted his copybook with a poor challenge that ended Onazi's game, and was worthy of a red card. 6
8/23 Yohan Cabaye
A quiet game nearly exploded with a stunning volley that struck the crossbar in the second half. 6
9/23 Mathieu Valbuena
At the heart of France's best attacking moments, but his final ball often could have been better. 7
10/23 Olivier Giroud
A physical presence in attack, but this was one of the Arsenal forward's less influential days before his removal around the hour mark. 5
11/23 Karim Benzema
Anonymous until the introduction of Griezmann, but then played his part in a strong French finish. 5
12/23 Antoine Griezmann
The arrival of the Real Sociedad forward turned the game in France's favour. 7
13/23 Nigeria: Vicent Enyeama
Impressed with some theatrical shot-stopping, but was at fault for France's opener. 6
14/23 Efe Ambrose
Distribution let down the Celtic defender on a number of occasions. 5
15/23 Juwon Oshaniwa
Unleashed some thumping tackles early on, but was often caught out by France's quick movement.6
16/23 John Obi Mikel
Struggled with the fluent moving of Valbuena, and failed to dictate play in midfield for the Nigerians. 5
17/23 Joseph Yobo
A landmark fixture for the captain ended with the disappointment of a late own-goal. 6
18/23 Kenneth Omeruo
The youngster again impressed, especially in the air when dealing with Giroud. 7
19/23 Peter Odemwingie
Another inconsistent performance from the Stoke forward. 6
20/23 Ogenyi Onazi
Was tidy while on the pitch, but twice departed on a stretcher, and was unable to recover the second time. 6
21/23 Emmanuel Emenike
A menace up front for Nigeria, and on another day his disallowed first half goal would not have been flagged offside. 7
22/23 Ahmed Musa
Not as much of an attacking threat for the Nigerians in this one, but showed a willingness to get up and down the left flank. 7
23/23 Victor Moses
Often lacked finesse, but showed incredible workrate, not least when clearing off the line from Benzema. 7
France will play Germany or Algeria in the last eight.
