French Guiana/World Cup: Brazil or France?

From French Guiana on the South American continent near Brazil, Carnet de Guyane writes (Fr) about allegiances during today's Brazil v. France soccer match: “Those who are French support France, those who are Brazilian support Brazil. So what about when you're Peruvian? or Haitian? or from Suriname? (…) It looks to me that Peruvians tend to root for Brazil and Haitians for France … What a dilemma!” The blogger added that he would not watch the game at a bar because: “there were 2 casualties [at a bar] the other day after Brazil's first match.”
