Jamaica vs France Preview – When Jamaica take on France today at 8:00 pm (French time), 3:00 pm EST, they will be without Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery who has been ruled out of the game the world cup due to a back injury.
Jamaica will be up against a French team that is ranked 20th in the world by FIFA. This will be just another warm-up game for the French side as they get ready for the world cup. One can expect, coach Didier Deschamps to experiment a bit with the side…but he may be in for a bit of surprise.
The Reggaeboyz are coming off three encouraging runs against Serbia, New Zealand, & Egypt…tough teams in their own right…and they be looking to go one better here.
Many are predicting a blowout, but I beg to differ. I think the reggaeboyz will come out with confidence and hold their own against a world class French side.
…and with the tactical genius Schaefer at the helm, I believe he may have a little surprise up his sleeve. So all in all, I am expecting a really competitive game. I don’t think the reggaeboyz are going to roll over and give France an easy win.
…but it’s all left to be seen. The proof will be in the the game.
