France will play Nigeria on Monday as the World Cup 2014 Last 16 continues. France have been in fantastic form so far in the tournament, and that has led some to tout them as potential winners this year. However, Nigeria will be hoping to cause an upset today and claim a place in the quarterfinals at France's expense. The game is scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the ESPN network, or online through free live stream (details below).

France's Karim Benzema scores a goal during the 2014 World Cup Group E soccer match between Switzerland and France at the Fonte Nova arena in Salvador June 20, 2014.

In team news, France's midfielder Yohan Cabaye will return to the team having served his suspension, however, defender Mamadou Sakho is likely to be out due to a thigh injury.

For Nigeria, forward Victor Moses is still a doubt. He missed the Argentina game with an injury and it is still uncertain whether he has made it back to fitness in time for today's game. He will face a late fitness test to confirm whether or not he will play a part today.

Meanwhile, Michael Babatunde is out after his wrist was fractured when he was hit by a shot from team-mate Ogenyi Onazi.

Winger Ahmed Musa has been one of the stand out players of the tournament so far. He caused Argentina all sorts of problems, and Nigeria will be hoping he can be in top form today.

Coach Stephen Keshi has said about the player: "I said Messi is from Jupiter, but Musa is from another planet with pace like that."

France have lost two of their last three World Cup games against African nations; against Senegal in 2002 and against South Africa in 2010. In between those two defeats they managed to defeat Togo in 2006.

However, they have also won their previous three second-round World Cup matches: 2-0 against Italy in 1986, 1-0 against Paraguay in 1998 and 3-1 against Spain in 2006.
