There are many ways to pick out great World Cup moments. Some are filled with agony and despair, some are memorable for the wrong reasons, but many are remembered for all the right reasons.
When picking out some memorable moments in France’s World Cup history, it is hard to forget the bad times that gained a number of headlines: the strike of South Africa 2010, the poor performances of 2002 and the failure to qualify in 1994.
However, when remembering France’s greatest moments, we have to remember the good times: the moments that bring smiles to the French fans, the moments that will make any highlight reel and the magical moments that the fans still talk about in bars.
That’s what we have done here. Let’s forget the bad times and remember all of the good moments that France have enjoyed throughout the decades.
That’s the criteria for making this list. All of these moments have made a positive impact on France’s football history.
