Nigeria midfielder John Obi Mikel expects his side's last-16 tie against France to be a "spectacular game".

John Obi Mikel is expecting a "spectacular game" when Nigeria come up against France in the last 16 of the World Cup tomorrow night.

The Super Eagles, who have never progressed into the quarter-finals, advanced through Group F despite losing 3-2 against Argentina last time out.

"It will be a spectacular game and we are very motivated," Mikel is quoted as saying by Goal.com. "The match could be decided by small details. It will be a close encounter.

"I have played against some of the France players before in the Champions League. The coaches have also done their homework on how to approach the game and have given us all the details we need."

The winner of the encounter in Brasilia will face either Germany or Algeria.
