The 1998 FIFA World Cup was the 16th World Cup.
It was held in France from 10 June to 12 July 1998.
The country was chosen as the host nation by FIFA
for the second time in the history of the tournament,
defeating Morocco in the bidding process.
Qualification for the finals began in March 1996
and concluded in November 1997. For the first time
in the competition, the group-stages were expanded
from 24 teams to 32, with eight groups of four.
A total of 64 matches were played in ten stadiums
located across ten different host cities, with the
opening match and final played at Stade de France,
Saint-Denis. The tournament was won by France,
who beat Brazil 3-0 in the final. France won their first
title, becoming the seventh nation to win a World Cup,
and the sixth (after Uruguay, Italy, England,
West Germany and Argentina) to win the tournament
on home soil.
