Today’s Picture of the Day features the French football team celebrating their goal in an international World Cup warm up match against Jamaica. The French team made light work of their opponents as Karim Benzema, Blaise Matuidi and Antoine Griezmann all starred in a convincing victory ahead of the World Cup that will give Didier Deschamps a lot of confidence. France took the lead in the 17th minute with Cabaye finishing off a well worked move. Their lead was doubled when Matuidi met Benzema’s pass with a fierce strike into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Then it was the turn of Karim Benzema as he worked his way to edge of the area before curling past a helpless Jacomeno Barrett in the Jamaica goal. Oliver Giroud was also on target in the 8-0 riot as he beat Barrett eight minutes into the second half firing in off the post from Benzema’s low left-wing cross.
With Franck Ribery out of the World Cup, France will need to put solid performances like this if they are to advance to the Round of 16. The Bayern Munich winger will miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup following a back injury that he picked up after injuring his lower back in a training session. France have been put in Group E alongside Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras.
