France midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has insisted that the team is capable of dealing with pressure at the World Cup.

Les Bleus have been backed to do well at the tournament after going unbeaten through the group stage.

Ahead of their second-round clash with Nigeria on Monday, Schneiderlin is confident that he and his teammates can handle expectations out in Brazil.

"We'll deal with the pressure step by step," the 24-year-old is quoted as saying by Goal.com.

"It's normal, because the closer you are to the final, the more pressure there is. We need to stay in our bubble now, we need to play each game like it's a final, and win it."

Schneiderlin has made one appearance for France so far at the World Cup.
