Home   /   Flashback: France v Brazil, 1998 World Cup Final – LIVE BLOG

Good evening everyone, I’m Owen Evans and I’ll be with you taking you through every kick of tonight’s World Cup final between Brazil and France in Paris.

Breaking news: Brazil head coach Mario Zagallo delivered the team sheet at 7:48pm local time, 72 minutes before kick-off in the World Cup final on July 12, 1998. Edmundo, and not Ronaldo, would start the showpiece occasion against France.

At 8:18, Brazil submitted a revised squad list, this time with Ronaldo starting and Edmundo among the subs. Has the Selecao staff pushed the great striker into playing? Was it Nike insisting on their prized client being visible on the grandest stage regardless of his readiness to compete?
