Round of 16 day 3 – France and Germany go through

France beat Nigeria with two late goals. They had an amazingly easy group despite their low ranking, the opposite to England who had 2 other top 10 ranked teams in their group.

Germany on the other hand had the group of death but finished top. However they made hard work of their round of 16 tie against lowly ranked Algeria. The match surprisingly went to extra time and although Germany eventually won 2-0 the score line was harsh and Algeria can go home with their heads held high!
