France vs Nigeria in Brasilia.
France and Nigeria have never met at a World Cup Finals although
they did play a friendly match in 2009.
Nigeria won the game (1:0) in Saint-Etienne.
So it's the blues - well, whites, actually - against the greens.
Can history be written or rewritten?
Just when it started to look like it wasn't going to be France's night, Vincent Enyeama
made the mistake of tipping Mathieu Valbuena's corner out to Paul Pogba's head, with
eleven minutes left to play.
Substitute Antoine Griezmann made it two just before injury-time, in off Joseph Yobo, to
end Nigeria's chance of getting a last minute equaliser.
