International Friendly: France vs. Costa Rica Live Stream (Free Online Video)
France vs. Costa Rica Live Stream: France nearly missed the World Cup finals and went through controversially after a tight contested match with Ireland. That game almost became a diplomatic incident with French President Nicolas Sarkozy apologizing for the contentious nature of his country’s victory. Now it’s time for Les Bleus to prove their worthy to go to football’s grandest event.
Tonight, Raymond Domenech’s squad will face Costa Rica in another friendly match in preparation for the World Cup. Barcelona striker Thierry Henry and Arsenal defender William Gallas will also be given run outs against Tricolor in a bid to prove their fitness ahead of South Africa.
The 1998 World Champions have only three games to sharpen their skills before meeting Uruguay in the opening match of the tournament, and this is the only game they’ll play on French soil before departing for Johannesburg.
Costa Rica, meanwhile, did not qualify for the World Cup. They are playing tonight only to improve their strength.
The game starts at 21:00 CET (3:00 p.m. ET).
