1998 FIFA World Cup Group B

Italy finished clear winners of this group with seven points. Injury-time equalisers for Austria, first against Cameroon and then against Chile, meant that all three of these teams could still qualify with one match to go. Austria were then eliminated after losing their final game to Italy (despite scoring once again in injury-time). Chile conceded equalisers in all their games, but their three draws were enough for them to qualify in second place and advance with a record-low three points.
