Olivier Giroud scored a double as France stepped up their World Cup preparations on Tuesday with a 4-0 victory over Norway at the Stade de France in the first of three pre-tournament friendlies. 

France's forward Olivier Giroud (R) is congratulated by his teammate forward Mathieu Valbuena after scoring a goal during a friendly football match between France and Norway at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis near Paris, on May 27, 2014

Paul Pogba netted a first-half opener in Paris, while Giroud enhanced his reputation ahead of next month's finals in Brazil through a second-half brace that came either side of Loic Remy's first international goal since 2011.
