  1. I remember going to school that day, and before I left, I heard France had lost against Senegal. I was happy. From Colombia.

  2. Im still remember this match was im 13th years old..but im supporter Brazil but defeated by France at final match..is so wierd what happen Ronaldo phenomenon was sick..so mysterous..

  3. Great and historical match from Senegal.. They made all African proud… Thanks Senegal for this legendary match and great generation 2002..love from Sudan founder of CAF

  4. I really think that day changes the game for ever. Until that day, there's no more small team, every country got they chance 🤞

  5. I'm not African but outside of my native country Senegal is my all-time favourite underdog. That day they were true lions and they got back their pride. I hope Senegal will make it in WC2022 and go past the group stage.

  6. Anything can happen in soccer. Foxes winning the title, Senegal beats reigning champs France, Iceland beats England etc. I feel like the underdogs don't win often but when they do they make noise and lots of it. Love it.

  7. senegal best team ever which we will never had again. this was a team full of belief, pride, confident and full of energy. this is a team i always support. this will never happened again

    Losing the 1st match caused France's confidence to plummet for the rest of the competition. In fact, the team lacked leaders like Deschamps or/and Blanc who could motivate their peers to bounce back in the competition. On top of that, there were Zidane's injury, the team's overall fatigue, and bad luck (France hit the post & the crossbar 5 times in 3 matches, Henry's red card): a mixture of unfortunate circumstances that saw France out the tournament.
