Deschamps demands Nigeria focus

Image
© Didier Deschamps has warned France's players they cannot think about anything but Monday's last-16 encounter with Nigeria if they are to make a lasting impression on the 2014 FIFA World Cup™. France thrilled in their first two group games, beating Honduras 3-0 and crushing Switzerland 5-2, and although a much-changed side then drew 0-0 with Ecuador, they find themselves being discussed as potential champions. However, Deschamps has told his squad not to start looking beyond Monday's tie at Brasilia's Mane Garrincha National Stadium and he batted away questions about France's chances of winning the tournament in his pre-game press conference. "My only concern is Nigeria in the last 16 and to make sure with my staff that we prepare the players for battle tomorrow (Monday)," he said. "There's no point looking beyond that. Our rendezvous is tomorrow at one o'clock (local time). "It's not like the group phase, where you can make amends…

African outsiders face European giants

Image
© MATCHDAY PREVIEW - Africa's two remaining teams return to the fray on Monday in a pair of Round of 16 showdowns against European powers. For Algeria, through to the knockout phase for the first time in their history, that means a daunting tie against three-time winners Germany, who have looked in excellent form so far at Brazil 2014. Les Fennecs (Desert Foxes) fear no one, though, and particularly not their upcoming opponents, having edged both of their previous meetings: a 2-0 friendly win in 1964 and a 2-1 success during the group stage at Spain 1982.

Nigeria can point to a similar record against their last-16 rivals France, with the only match between the teams ending in a 1-0 triumph for the Super Eagles in June 2009. Despite that, Les Bleus have emerged as a genuine force at this FIFA World Cup™, scoring eight goals in their first two games ahead of a goalless draw with Ecuador. That contrasted with Nigeria's more delicate progress through a very open Group F, the Africa…

Interview: Young Jeezy, YG And DJ Mustard Hit The 2014 BET Awards

Earlier today (June 29), VIBE hit the 2014 BET Awards with our cameras armed to catch all the backstage action. On our first stop, the red carpet, we caught up with trapstars Young Jeezy, YG and DJ Mustard who mobbed through as a trio. After touching on his upcoming album, the Snowman pulled his young West Coast homies along and put a new term into the air. Instead of accepting the label of O.G—Jeezy says he prefers to be called the O.T.—that's "Original Trapper" in case you didn't know. Check out the video to see if YG and Mustard approve.

‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Has Year’s Biggest Opening Day, Set for $104 Million Weekend

Image
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” has obliterated the box office, hauling in a higher-than-expected $41.6 million Stateside on Friday, the biggest opening day of the year.
The robots look to do more damage en route to a whopping $104 million-plus debut this weekend. Paramount estimates a slightly more modest $100 million. If that estimate pans out, the fourth installment of Paramount’s ever-growing franchise would overtake “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as the best debut of the year. Disney-Marvel’s sequel earned $95 million when it opened the summer box office early, hitting theaters in the first weekend of April. This would mark the second best opening for director Michael Bay’s $2.6 billion movie series. “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” debuted to $109 million in 2009. The $210 million tentpole could also become the first pic since “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and the first movie of the year to hit the $100 million mark in its launch (as well as the 27th movie to e…

Film Review: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

Image
'Cloverfield' director Matt Reeves helms a bleak but spectacular sequel to the 2011 man-vs.-monkey hit.Film Critic@guylodge It’s always darkest before the dawn, goes the saying — but in resuming a franchise already suspended on a downbeat note, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” sees the simian revolution reaching unprecedented levels of bleak anarchy. An altogether smashing sequel to 2011′s better-than-expected “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” this vivid, violent extension of humanoid ape Caesar’s troubled quest for independence bests its predecessor in nearly every technical and conceptual department, with incoming helmer Matt Reeves conducting the proceedings with more assertive genre elan than “Rise” journeyman Rupert Wyatt. Entirely replacing the previous film’s human cast, but crucially promoting Andy Serkis’ remarkable motion-capture inhabitation of Caesar to centerstage, “Dawn” ought to go ape at the global box office starting July 9, smoothing the path for fur…

BET Awards 2014: Worst Dressed

Image
Oh Zendaya, you've been doing so well! Your red carpet ensembles have been AH-Mazing at these past events, but we're a little disappointed in your BET Awards red carpet attire! The periwinkle blue is certainly a good choice for a summertime award show, but the entire outfit was a little confusing! Was she going for a sporty look? Flirty and sexy? Flirty, sexy, sporty chic??

Image
A fatal shooting and a separate stabbing at unsanctioned parties celebrating Sunday's BET Awards cast a shadow over the event, where top superstars like Lil Wayne, Chris Rock and others were set to mark the best in black entertainment.

Koscielny wary of Nigeria threat (Yobo: I believe in this team)

Image
While Didier Deschamps's France side garnered plaudits by sweeping past Honduras 3-0 and crushing Switzerland 5-2, a more cautious tone has been heard as they prepare for Monday's FIFA World Cup Round of 16 tie against Nigeria.  A much-changed team could only draw 0-0 in their final Group E fixture against Ecuador on Wednesday. Both Bacary Sagna and Morgan Schneiderlin suggested that France were potential champions after the stalemate at the Maracana, but centre-back Laurent Koscielny has since introduced a note of caution as Les Bleus prepare for Monday's game in Brasilia.It is only seven months since France had to overcome a 2-0 deficit to beat Ukraine in their qualifying play-off and the Arsenal defender says that it would be unwise to look too far ahead. "The first objective was to get through the group phase. Now it's to go as far as possible," he said."We are competitors and we are ambitious, but we know that we have opponents against us and that w…
