Just before one of the major tournaments if I remember correctly, was a rather splendid free kick from a wonderful full back.

Yeah I thought so, I also remember one of the games in that tourney when Brazil played England. A lot of talk about the 2 strikers on show, Shearer and the absolute legend and world class Ronaldo. English media as usual saying who was better etc, anyway at one point In the game both players were pulled out to the sideline for a 50/50 and you could just tell Shearer was wanting to land one on the superior player........Ronaldo made him look a tad silly :-)

Yup, as the Gaffa says, 1997 Tounai de France, held in June.

 

France, Brazil, Italy and England invited to a small dress-reharsal warm-up tourney for France '98.
