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.
Italy played Brazil in their second match which turned out to be a thrilling goal festooned encounter where the best defence in world football came up against the best attack (Brazil had the luxury of fielding both Romario and Ronaldo). England’s second game pitted them against the hosts France with Alan Shearer back from injury to lead the team out while France had their maestro Zidane pulling the strings. With Brazil and France having played a draw in the opening match and England comprehensively beating Italy in theirs, England surprisingly found themselves topping the group before this game.
This features full coverage of the France v England game, unfortunately it is missing the first 20 mins of the game (can’t remember why this happened, musta mistimed with the VCR recording) but luckily it doesn’t miss any goals, apologies for that. Commentary by Martin Tyler and Trevor Francis.
Will up the final England v Brazil game after this inluding highlights, analysis & review of the amazing Italy v Brazil game and the trophy presentation.
