France Knock Out The World Champions

Quarter-final Match

Travel to Brazil Brazil vs Travel to France France
in Frankfurt

Previous Encounters:
In seven previous encounters Brazil have only won two games and drawn three (although they went out to France on penalties in the quarter-final at Mexico 1986).

France also won the France 1998 World Cup Final (3:0) and the Confederations Cup match in Suwon (2:1).

Brazil's wins were a 1992 friendly in Paris (2:0) and the Stockholm semi-final (5:2) at Sweden 1958.

The Match:
Juan was probably lucky not to get a red card, just before half-time, for a two footed sliding tackle from behind on Patrick Vieira as he ran towards the goal. But the Brazilian will miss the semi-final; if they win here.

France had to re-take the free-kick, a little nearer, and Ronaldo was booked for handball on the edge of the area (although they were in the area and it should have been a penalty for France).

With the second free-kick blasted into the wall, the chance for France to go into the changing room in front was wasted.

Half-time: (0:0)

Patrick Vieira headed wide from a Zidane free-kick, just after the break, as France tried to get the advantage.

Zidane's 57th minute free-kick was much better, as Thierry Henry slipped in at the far post; to volley France into the lead.

Four minutes later, Franck Ribery's trickery on the left almost forced an own-goal from Juan.

After Ronaldo dived in the French area (another yellow card would have ended his game), France broke on the counter-attack and Dida had to spread himself at the edge of the area to stop the threat.

Ronaldo's dive worked two minutes from the end and earned Lilian Thuram a yellow card.

Just ouside the penalty area, Ronaldinho wasted the free-kick and blasted over the bar.

France ended Brazil's reign as World Champions.

Final Score:
Travel to Brazil Brazil 0 - Travel to France France 1
