"We needed to throw things forward, and it opened things up in defence".

Zinedine Zidane was missing due to injury as France were stunned 1-0 by Senegal in their first game, and they followed that with a 0-0 draw against Uruguay, as Thierry Henry was sent off.

"After a European or World Cup, you can judge the work that has been done in the previous two years". In a tight final outing, goals from the captain and Marcos Rojo - the latter coming in the 86th minute - secured the win they needed to advance against a gusty young Nigeria team. The latest odds and betting lines have Brazil and Spain as the heavy favorites.

Around 500 fans gave the players a largely warm welcome as they arrived just 48 hours after stunning the world by eliminating Germany with a 2-0 victory in Kazan.

Russian Federation made a dream start with a thumping 5-0 victory in their opening game against Saudi Arabia and then defeated Egypt (3:1).

Spain looked suspect defensively last time out against Morocco, but Russian Federation haven't scored a World Cup goal against European opposition on European soil since 1982 against Belgium.

Christian Eriksen's wonderful goal set them on the path to a crucial draw against Australia which ultimately secured their passage through to the knockout stages. "We tried everything to play football but we just couldn't get going". Striker Yussuf Poulsen could also achieve the same feat.




Germany players and officials are on their way home after their shock exit at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup. In the 80 years since then, they've lost four knockout games.

The Philippines, ranked 111th in the world, will actually battle South Korea as they belong in Group C together with China and Kyrgyzstan.

But history was not on Germany's side - as BBC "Match of the Day" tweeted out, this is the third straight tournament in which the reigning World Cup winners have failed to get out of the group stage.

But a 2-0 reverse against South Korea, coupled with Sweden's 3-0 defeat of Mexico, means that Joachim Low's men are on the way home from Russian Federation.

But as we all know, the tournament never plays out the way we see it on paper.

He had hoped to move beyond the more typical surroundings of the stadium, hotel and airport to take in more of what the city has to offer during the World Cup - although the sheer volume of fans has forced him to reassess his plans.
