Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has made it clear that  victory for Nigeria over France in their encounter tomorrow is non-negotiable.
Keshi, oozing with confidence, told sports reporters in Brazil that he is already looking beyond the Monday match with French national team.
Super Eagles will sweat it out with France for second round encounter. The only recorded encounter between both sides at senior level was a friendly game played on June 2, 2009, in which a goal from Joseph Akpala gave Nigeria the win.
Meanwhile, President Goodluck Jonathan has promised to travel to Brazil to watch the Super Eagles if they are able to make it to the quarter-finals.
Nigeria has to get past France to reach that stage.
Captain Joseph Yobo said that with the additional incentive from the president, the players will be more motivated to reach that historic landmark.
