Wed. 8th July:

France v. Croatia Saint-Denis (21:00)

France get to try their luck against Brazil, in Saint-Denis again, on Sunday.

Zidane spearheaded the French attack in the first half, but the game remained scoreless at the break.

The second-half started like the Brazil game. Suker scored about 22 seconds after the restart to join Batistuta and Vieri on five goals in France 98. A goal against Holland on Saturday and the Croat should get the golden boot, but the team will not get the Golden Trophy.

Thuram equalised straight from the kick-off, and added his second on the seventieth minute. Four minutes later France had Laurent Blanc sent off, but Les Bleus continued to attack with Lizarazu and Zidane. Barthez didn't want to face the penalty shoot-out again, and kept out all Croatian attempts to take the game into extra-time.
(Final Score: 2-1)
