The 1998 Brazil team is one of the finest ever – certainly one of the most thrilling, having given fans some of the greatest memories ever. And yet, it sits between two others as the odd one out.

The Selecao lifted the World Cup in 1994 in Pasadena, USA, with the likes of Romario up front. Eight years later in 2002, they would win their fifth title aided by the likes of Ronaldinho in Yokohama, Japan. But 1998?

The Brazilians came so near yet so far, losing the Stade De France final 3-0 to the hosts. What a tournament they had, though: they set France alight (and not just with the iconic airport Nike ad), inspiring a new generation with their samba moves and electric football. 

In the semi-final, they would break Dutch hearts, beating the Netherlands on penalties to reach the second of third successive World Cup finals. Our question to you this morning… how many of that iconic Brazil side from '98 can you remember?
