November 1, 2011 7:14am CST
anyone here had ever watched one of the great match in world cup 1998?? i think it is early final or semifinal in this world cup...why?? becuase both of the team is one of the best team in that year... england with a golden era of MU, like David beckham, paul shcoles. Alan shearer with a golden boy like Michael Owen..Dont forget too David Seaman and Sol Campbell..\\what about argentina?? batistuta and crespo is guarantee that argentina had great forward...veron, almeyda, zanetti and diego simeone..wow..ayala and jose chamot is famous defender.. the result until the shout out pinalty is 2-2 with batistuta and shearer score from pinalty..one wonderful goal from Owen make england lead 2-1 before zanetti use the chance in near of seaman post.. crespo failed in argentina list, but paul ince and batty make england fans cry..\i always watch this video from youtube and remind me how i think that argentina maybe get their winner that year but it is not happen again...

I remember the match for the goal from Michael Owen. It was really a wonder goal. I do not remember much more other than that goal by Owen. I have though seen their 1986 clash when the infamous Hand of God event occurred. The reason why I remember that very clearly was that was the first world cup that was beamed in live to India.

thats one of the wonderful goal from owen..his speed running reach 100 km/hours if i am not wrong...fantastics.. and his age when 1998 is below 20 if iam not wrong again.. and he beat jose chamot, matias almeyda and ayala before one on one with carlos roa.. thats was accident too when diego simeone is successfully provocating david beckham and beckham get red card

well, I think that was one of the great match in World cup history. So many political and competetion between those two nations. Both of nation has all the great star players on their ideal age and shinning boy like Owen and tremendous Shearer too.. It's quarter final I think, since England was qualifeid to semifinal during Bobby robson coach at 1986 world cup when they got beaten by Germany. Again England lost in penalty match, they always beaten several times from this penalty events..So maybe mentality not as strong as Argentina.. How about if both nation playing now? Which one stronger nowadays?

yes, england and argentina match involved too political drama, when england attack maldiva island if iam not wrong.. both of the team play with a high pride and don`t want to be a loser in that match... if you remember one part in the match when provocation from diego simeone make david beckham get red card... i think messi will make difficult for rio ferdinand and John Terry...and maybe argentina will winn again against England..

As far as i remember, i was only 16 back then, and matches then were shown around 3am where i was sleeping. How i wish i could watch it but no. All i know was Brazil losing to France in the finals and my dad was really upset about it. Though the world cup was a big event, i wasn't quite interested in it although i'm playing the game. It's only in 2002 when korea/japan co-host the world cup, i got hooked as i'm able to watch the games in the afternoon. My most memorable match was England VS Brazil, where England lost to ronaldinho's goal.

in 1998, iam in 18 years...yes france become the winner in first time and beat ronaldo and brazil in Final... Zinedine zidane, djorkaef become inspiration for France... and Croatia is the biggest surprise in 1998 world cup when they become number three in that world cup. Davor suker become top scorer with 6 goals
