Paris: Striker Olivier Giroud scored twice and winger Mathieu Valbuena set up three goals as France began their World Cup preparation in fine style with a 4-0 win against Norway on Tuesday.
Paul Pogba headed France into the lead in the 15th minute and, after France's performance had dropped in intensity, Giroud got things going early in the second half with an expertly-taken goal. Substitute Loic Remy scored shortly after he coming on, and Giroud rounded off a good night for coach Didier Deschamps' team with a glancing header.
France play Paraguay on Sunday and then take on Jamaica in their final friendly match on June 8 before heading to Brazil. (Also read: Brazil promises greenest FIFA World Cup)
