What does that sentence intend?

It's "What does that sentence MEAN?" A sentence cannot "intend".

Variety means type or kind, and to face something or someone is to stand before someone, face to face. This can be literal, as in "Stand up and face me, not the wall" or it can be more figurative, and mean to compete against someone, especially if that requires a lot of bravery on the "facer's" part -- to face someone in battle, or to face the boss on Monday.
