Page style[edit]

This page needs the images fixed - I'm too drunk to do this at the moment, but it needs to be fixed. Could someone take care of this?

The style used for the 2006 FIFA World Cup is quite nice. I'd suggest adopting that. Any comments? --StuartBrady (Talk) 16:54, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Football World Cup 1998 → 1998 FIFA World Cup – following the consensus of naming the World Cup articles as FIFA World Cup in Wikipedia, and consistency of naming the major international football tournaments.

Discuss here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Competitions#Requested move of Football World Cup articles. --Pkchan 10:35, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Moved per consensus. --Pkchan 13:10, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
Does anyone know the name of the security force France created just for the France 98 games? Dessydes 18:09, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Intro[edit]

Do we need the line or two about Michael Owen in the intro? After all, there were many great goals in '98 (a Dutch one springs to mind), and entire teams worth of players made their world cup debut. Fine player he is, Owen has hardly had the world cup impact of a Maradona or Garrincha. A.J.W

I think the comment about Owen should be there. That goal was the best goal of the tournament. It grabbed the attention of every football team in that tournament. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.4.227.114 (talk) 12:07, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Round of 16[edit]

Forgive me for being a bit confused here -- why are there no match reports for the Round of 16? TheProject 03:53, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Fair Play award[edit]

FIFA Fair Play Trophy lists England and France as winners of this award. "The FIFA Fair Play Trophy is given to the team with the best record of fair play during the World Cup final tournament. Only teams that qualified for the second round are considered."

I've changed it back. --StuartBrady (Talk) 23:49, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Match reports[edit]

Looks like all the match reports at Yahoo are gone. Currently searching for an adequate replacement - BBC seems patchy.--82.15.46.131 19:09, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Norway Vs Brazil[edit]

How Is It Impossible If Norway Beaten Brazil 2-1?No Offence,Thank You.--Cokepepsi 23:52, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Ronaldo's incident[edit]

I believe the ronaldo incident should be mentioned...many brazilians believe france bought the worldcup but I don't suggest to mention that but rather ronaldo's problems before match. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.191.4.240 (talkcontribs) 2011-11-04T15:14:22‎

Not quite what you're talking about. Players do not always play well. Rumour an innuendo are no grounds for inclusion. If you can find an article about the tournament rather than specifically about the player it would be worth including. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:50, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Opening Ceremony[edit]

Who can give info about the Opening Ceremony at the streets of Paris? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.237.226.252 (talk) 19:13, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Corruption & Bribery Investigations[edit]

On 4th June 2015 Chuck Blazer while co-operating with the FBI and the Swiss authorities admitted that he and the other members of FIFA's executive committee were bribed in order to promote the South African, 1998 and 2010 World Cups. [1] I'll start work on this and the 2010 FIFA corruption sections once we know more about this breaking story. Twobellst@lk 12:17, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
