France 1998 World Cup team Adidas team kits

The adidas branding went one step further with the new France national team kits in 1998 FIFA World Cup. The 1998 FIFA World Cup, the 16th staging of the World Cup, was held in France from June 10 to July 12 after 60 years to celebrate the third edition scheduled in 1938. The tournament was won by France, who beat Brazil 3-0 in the final. France won their first title, the 7th nation to win a World Cup, and the first host nation to win the tournament since Argentina did it in 1978.Under head coaches Aime Jacquet, France swept Group C, with the lone blemish being the red card expulsion and two-game suspension of Zinedine Zidane in a 4-0 win over Saudi Arabia.It was clear that though the team was far from being the most flamboyant in French history, it was a perfectly well-oiled machine that neither injury, nor expulsions, nor suspensions, managed to stop. Lilian Thuram and Marcel Desailly were linchpins of the best defense in the tournament, conceding only 2 goals in seven matches.

France beat Italy in the quarter-finals on penalties after a scoreless draw. Though they fell behind for the first time in the tournament to Croatia, Thuram scored two goals in France's comeback semi-final win. The overall defence consisting of Thuram, Desailly, Blanc and Bixente Lizarazu was extremely strong and often impenetrable.
