Pre-World Cup Friendly: France vs. Jamaica

Will Jamaica upset France at home? Tune in at 8pm UK time.

The Stade Pierre-Mauroy stadium near Lille is the venue as France hosts Jamaica for a pre-World Cup friendly match tonight (8pm UK time).

France: Will Ribery Play?

One of France's main concerns is the back injury sustained by star winger Franck Ribery which is still in question for tonight's game although manager Didier Deschamps said he believes his number 7 will be ready. France's friendly against Paraguay last Saturday saw Les Bleus conceding a late goal in the 89th minute just 7 minutes after securing the lead by the boot of Real Sociedad winger and substitute, Antoine Griezmann, who also marked his first international goal. While not considered a big favorite for the World Cup, France will certainly try to impress against the weaker Jamaica.

Jamaica: A Long Shot

Positioned 80 in the FIFA rankings, Jamaica has made it only to one World Cup back in 1998 where the team failed to qualify from the group stage but did manage to beat Japan in their final game. In the past few days, the Jamaicans have been displaying mediocre performance in their pre-World Cup fixtures including the 2-2 with Egypt and it's hard to see Winfried Schafer's team pose a serious threat to France. However, Jamaica has got to prepare for the Caribbean Cup which the country will be hosting this coming November, as well as the Copa America Campaign -so they certainly will try to leave a good impression by beating the French.
