Hugo Lloris enjoyed a quiet evening as France thrashed Jamaica 8-0 on Sunday.

The goalkeeper captained the French side which took apart the Reggae Boys in Lille in their final World Cup warm-up match.

Goals from Yohann Cabaye and Blaise Matuidi had France 2-0 up inside 20 minutes before Karim Benzema and Olivier Giroud took the game out of sight.

Benzema and Matuidi then doubled up before substitute Antoine Griezmann added a brace from the bench to round off the scoring for Didier Deschamps' men.

Spurs' Belgian trio of Mousa Demble, Jan Vertonghen and Nacer Chadli were all involved in Belgium's 1-0 win over Tunisia on Saturday.

Substitute Chadli got the assist for the winner off the bench, setting up Dries Mertens after replacing Kevin Miralles with 28 minutes to play.

Dembele and Vertonghen both played the full 90 minutes, with Vertonghen picking up a booking.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Benoit Assou-Ekotto helped Cameroon overcome Moldova 1-0.

The left-back, who spent last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers, came on from Henri Bedimo at half-time.

Edgard Salli got the winner ten minutes before the end for Cameroon.

On Friday night, Paulinho helped World Cup hosts Brazil beat Serbia 1-0.

The midfielder played 65 minutes before being replaced by Manchester City's Fernandinho.

Fluminense striker Fred got the Selecao's winner in the 58th minute.
