France coach Didier Deschamps has played down their World Cup chances after victory over Nigeria.

Les Bleus are now into the quarterfinals after victory over the Super Eagles.

“We pushed a lot and we had a lot of chances, especially in the second half,” Deschamps told FIFA’s website. “But all the matches are difficult.

“It’s a strong emotion to be in the top eight teams in the world, this has given us a lot.

“We played well and we were alert against a very athletic Nigeria, but we also had a little bit of luck.

“The title? We’ll see, we’re in the quarter-finals for now.”
