LILLE, France -- France heads to Brazil with its confidence high after rounding off World Cup warmup matches by thrashing Jamaica 8-0 on Sunday, with striker Karim Benzema scoring two and creating two in an impressive display of attacking football.

Benzema picked out Oliver Giroud for France's fourth goal and also created the second for midfielder Blaise Matuidi, who in turn set up Benzema's second.

Star winger Franck Ribery was ruled out of the World Cup on Friday because of a lingering back injury but his absence could work in France's favour as the teamwork looks much improved. Giroud set up the opener for midfielder Yohan Cabaye and left back Patrice Evra crossed for Matuidi's second of the night.

Antoine Griezmann came off the bench to score two clinical goals.
