Ramsay's Costa Del Nightmares - 1998: Brazil way too weak in the final - Netflix
At the 1998 FIFA World Cup participated five nations of South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay. Paraguay qualified for the first time since 1986. After Brazil beat Scotland and Marocco while Norway drew with Morocco and Scotland, Brazil had qualified as group winners with a game to spare. Chile conceded equalisers in all their games, but their three draws were enough for them to qualify in second place and advance with a record-low three points. Paraguay drew their first two games 0-0 and beat 3-1 Nigeria qualified in second place. After two games in group England and Colombia were level on points before they played each other in their final group game. Colombia lost the match 0-2 and withdraw. Argentina qualified with a match to spare after they beat Japan and Jamaica with Gabriel Batistuta scoring in both games. Argentina then beat Croatia to take first place. Chile in the Round of 16 play against South American rivals Brazil at the Parc des Princes in Paris. César Sampaio scored twice early on, and a Ronaldo penalty made it 3–0 before half-time. Chile kept fighting, and Salas got his fourth goal of the competition, heading in a rebound after Cláudio Taffarel had saved a shot from Zamorano, but Ronaldo scored again quickly and Chile were out of the tournament. Argentina - England round of 16 match stayed 2-2 until the end of extra time. In the ensuing penalty shoot-out that decided the game, Argentina won 4-3 after two English kicks were saved by their goalkeeper Carlos Roa. Paraguay lost to France. France only scored through Laurent Blanc in the 114th minute, during the second half of overtime (making it the first golden goal scored in a World Cup). Argentina in the quarter-final 1-2 lost Netherlands an 89th minute. Moments after Argentine playmaker Ariel Ortega was sent off for head-butting Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, evening the teams at 10 men a side, Dutch captain Frank de Boer launched a 60-yard pass directly to the right foot of Bergkamp in the right side of the penalty area. With his first touch, the striker known as “The Iceman” cut back to his left past defender Roberto Ayala. With his second touch, Bergkamp tucked a hard shot over keeper Carlos Roa into the top left corner. In other quarter-final Denmark put up much more of a battle than many thought possible, but in the end, using two goals by Rivaldo, defending World Cup holder Brazil pulled out a 3-2 decision in a quarterfinal match today at La Beaujoire Stadium. In the 60th minute, Rivaldo netted the final and deciding goal, finding the low right corner from 20 yards. Semi- final: Brazil - Netherlands. Ronaldo scored in the 46th minute for Brazil, and Patrick Kluivert equalized for the Dutch in the 87th minute. A surprisingly tame match was tied 1-1 after 120 minutes. Goalkeeper Claudio Taffarel made two diving saves as Brazil defeated The Netherlands 4-2 on penalty kicks. The final was contested by Brazil, who were the defending champions having won the previous World Cup four years earlier in 1994, and the host nation France, who had reached the final of the tournament for the first time. France won the match 3–0 to claim the World Cup for the first time, with the timing of the match two days before Bastille Day adding to the significance of the victory. Zinedine Zidane, who was named man of the match, scored twice before half-time and Emmanuel Petit added a third goal in the last minute. The match had an attendance in the region of 75,000. The match also saw speculation on the condition of the Brazilian striker Ronaldo, who suffered a convulsive fit on the eve of the match. After initially being left out of the team sheet, in spite of his physical state, it was announced just 72 minutes before kick-off that he was going to play. In the match, he sustained an injury in a clash with French goalkeeper Fabien Barthez. Although it was believed that the decision to play Ronaldo had backfired, it was understandable as the player had been a crucial member of the side throughout the tournament, having scored four goals and created three more. They also inflicted the heaviest defeat on Brazil since 1930.
