France Put Eight Past Jamaica

France were in a rampant mood on Sunday night as they thrashed Jamaica 8-0 in an international friendly at the Stade pierre-Moaroy-Villeneuve. 

Didier Deschamps men racked up another win as they head into next Sunday's World Cup opener with Honduras.

Yohan Cabaye opened the scoring in the 17th minute with a composed finish, after some good build-up play between the midfielder and Olivier Giroud.

Three minutes later and the lead was doubled through Blaise Matuidi's low-driven strike from 20-yards, after being teed up by Karim Benzema.

France dominated throughout the first half and added a third in the 38th minute, as Karim Benzema curled one into the top corner for his 20th goal for the national side.

Giroud got his name on the score-sheet five minutes after the restart, with a powerful finish from close range after being picked out Benzema.

Benzema them got France's fifth in the the 63rd minute with another fine finish from inside the area, after collecting a pass from Matuidi.

Two minutes later and Matuidi got his second of the night, Patrice Evra picked out the midfielder, who volleyed home from six-yards out. 

Mathieu Valbuena should have added a seventh in the 74th minute but the French winger managed to place his effort wide of the target from close range.

Substitute Antoine Griezmaan got in on the act just a minute later with a controlled right-footed finish from inside the area, before completing his brace in the 89th minute.

The visitors had no answers for the French attack, and failed to register a single effort on target.

In the night's other results, Carlos Querioz's Iran defeated Trinadad and Tobago 2-0, while Costa Rica were held to a 1-1 draw by the Republic of Ireland.
