The story began before a ball had even been kicked.

The 1998 FIFA World Cup final between France and Brazil instantly went down in history.

And this week FIFA are offering you the chance to relive it all with FIFA Rewind – a ground-breaking mobile and social series, which will bring a selection of the greatest games in World Cup history right up into the 21st century.

Fans have voted for the games they want to relive from 1982 to 2014 and this weekend we move on to 1998.

The contests will be given the same level of coverage you’d expect from a modern World Cup blockbuster, complete with pre and post-match analysis published via Goal and FIFA's social media channels throughout the week.

The greatest player on the planet, Ronaldo, sent shockwaves around the world after falling ill the night before the final. 

He was originally left out of Brazil’s starting line-up, but was then astonishingly recalled just moments before kick-off.

It was supposed to be his final, but another great, Zinedine Zidane, had other ideas.

Relive all the drama this Friday.
