13th June: vs. Mexico (1:3) in Lyon.

20th June: vs. Holland (0:5) in Marseilles.

25th June: vs. Belgium (1:1) in Paris.

The co-host of the next World Cup, in 2002, managed to earn a draw against Belgium in their last game; although they were already out of the tournament and had sacked their coach after the second defeat.

Sang Chul Yoo's 71st minute equaliser sent a siren through the Bay of Mexico. The Mexicans, who were losing 0-2 to the Dutch at the time, clawed back to earn themselves a draw and qualification ahead of Belgium.
