Ahmed Musa-KeshiStephen Keshi has said that a win over France in their quarter-final clash on Monday is non-negotiable.

The Super Eagles have previously faced Les Bleus just once in the past – a friendly match in 2009, that was decided by a Joseph Akpala goal.

However, the prize at stake when both teams file out at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha, is a place among the last eight of the tournament.

Keshi has called on his players to show mental strength and defeat the former World Cup winners.

He said: “I said before the tournament that our mentality must be strong. Our approach to every match has always been the same: to win.

“Whether we are playing against Spain at the Fifa Confederations Cup or playing against Liberia in a friendly match, I always tell the boys that victory is non –negotiable.

“For us, we will go into Monday’s match aiming to win. But as I also said before the competition, we take it one match at a time.

“We don’t even want to think of who might be lurking in the quarter finals if we win; we are not bothered. All we know is that we must win on Monday.”
