Germany scraped through to a World Cup quarterfinal meeting with France despite being given a real scare by Algeria on a thrilling night of football in Porto Alegre.  Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil scored as Germany won 2-1 after extra time, but for much of the night, it seemed Joachim Low's men were heading for what would have been the shock defeat of the tournament so far.  Algeria spotted Germany's vulnerable high-line defence from the first whistle and took advantage with a series of long-ball counter-attacks.  Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer played sweeper for much of the match in the Estadio Beira-Rio, racing out of his box to clear on four occasions.  France marched into the World Cup quarterfinals after shading an absorbing contest against Nigeria in Brasilia.  Les Bleus had been kept at bay by the African side, and given a few scares of their own, until a spell of intense pressure led to Paul Pogba heading them into the lead in the 79th minute before Joseph Yobo's own goal compounded the Super Eagles' misery.  For much of the match, Nigeria keeper Vincent Enyeama, who plays his club football in France for Lille, had defied the French, but it was his unfortunate blunder that allowed Juventus star Pogba the chance.  France now face Germany in the quaterfinals.
