Brasília, June 29 (IANS/EFE) France defender Bacary Sagna has said it would be a failure if they did not qualify for the World Cup final to be played at the iconic Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro July 13.
It would be a success if we go all the way. As players, we aspire to go as far as possible, we aspire to win trophies and for me it would be a failure not to win the cup, Sagna said, reports EFE.
France meet Nigeria Monday in the Round of 16 at the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha here.
We have set ourselves certain objectives. First of all, we wanted to get out of the group stage. Now we want to go all the way, so to stop against Nigeria would be a failure, he added.
Sagna may sit on the bench against Nigeria but added that he does not have a problem with it.
