Giroud to send France through at 11/2

France have already shown they have the ability (and firepower) to put other nations to the sword at this summer's World Cup.

While Didier Deschamps' side were not entirely convincing in their last outing against Ecuador, we feel the last 16 clash with Nigeria on Monday will be a different ball game altogether.

William Hill are offering odds of 11/2 on Olivier Giroud to score first and France to win, although the impressive Ahmed Musa could well strike again for Nigeria; a reverse wincast of Musa to score anytime and France to win returns a tasty-looking 9/1.
