The 2002 happening repeated in the case of France. In 2002 France came for World Cup football as the defending champion and slipped in front of Senegal. From that upset they couldn’t come back in the tournament and severely failed to qualify to second round. But in the next edition of world cup football in 2006 they came back and again reached finals of the tournament on the wings of Franc’s ever playmaker Zinadin Zidane.
