Le Tournoi was a friendly tournament held in France in June 1997 as a warm-up to the France 98 World Cup Finals. The four competing teams were all being touted as among the favourites to win the World Cup; Italy, Brazil, France and England. Adding a competitive edge was the fact that England and Italy were in the same qualifying group for the finals and their encounter in this tournament was book-ended by their two qualifying matches, with Italy already having drawn first blood by beating England at Wembley.
During the tournament, each team was to play each other only once. France and Brazil played the opening match, ironic seeing as it would be these same two teams competing in the World Cup Final a year later, which was made famous by an amazing Roberto Carlos free kick from 35 yards out that bent to an almost surreal degree. England and Italy were to follow, both teams trying badly to pretend that it had no significance in relation to World Cup qualification. The tournament culminated in Brazil playing England and presentation of the trophy to the winning team.
This features the full 90 mins of the Italy v England encounter, notable for the full England debut of a young Paul Scholes, preceded by highlights and review of the France v Brazil game including extensive analysis of THAT free kick. Richard Keys hosts with help from Ray Wilkins and Barry Venison, includes post match interviews with Ian Wright, Paul Scholes and Paul Ince. Commentary by Martin Tyler and Trevor Francis.
Will up the other England games from this tournament if anyone is interested.
