It was France who won the World Cup in 1998. The host country beat Brazil 3-0 in the final.
But if things had went differently, it would have been the Netherlands, who lost to Brazil on penalties in the semi-final, and not Ronaldo and his colleagues facing Les Bleus.
France's defence would have been pitted against Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Kluivert—one of the most feared strike partnerships of the tournament. Together, Bergkamp and Kluivert scored five goals, but it was the way they combined and found each other so easily that was so impressive.
Two years later, during EURO 2000, Bergkamp and Kluivert joined forces for a second tournament, but ever since then, Holland's attack has never looked so impressive again.
