FIFA World Cup Pevious History | FIFA World Cup 2014 News
The 2002 FIFA World Cup™ in Korea/Japan reflected a changing
football world. On a new continent, old powers were falling
fast and after a succession of surprises, for the first time the
quarter-finals featured teams from five different federations. In
the end, however, it was two well-known faces, Germany and
Brazil, who contested the Final and the South Americans who
claimed an unprecedented fifth world crown.
Koreans still like to recall the victorious moment of the
2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan when the Korean
national team advanced to the semifinal.

The FIFA World Cup™ ended up in Italian hands in 2006 after
an Azzurri triumph that owed everything to teamwork. The abiding memory
of the Final at Berlin's Olympic Stadium may be of Zinedine Zidane's
meltdown, the France veteran earning an red card for headbutting Marco
Materazzi, but there was much to admire about the Italian effort that
earned them a fourth world crown.
This World Cup had a special momentum, linked with a
history of freedom and the history of one man.
