"The home of Jules Rimet, the father of the FIFA World Cup™, France finally claimed the crown for itself in the summer of 1998. If an unforgettable summer for the new champions – who had tasted semi-final defeat twice a decade before – it was also a memorable one for the old tournament which was now bigger than ever before.

'Footix' the FIFA World Cup 98 MascotThe 16th FIFA World Cup comprised 32 teams for the first time. The greater number of qualifying places meant more opportunities for teams from Africa, Asia and CONCACAF – in this case, first-time qualifiers South Africa, Japan and Jamaica. The eight groups of four were spread out across France but the venue for the Opening Match and Final was the showpiece Stade de France just north of Paris. It was there that holders Brazil kicked off the tournament with a 2-1 victory over Scotland, achieved thanks to Tom Boyd's own goal."

Panini World Cup 98 France Sticker PacketThe first page of the Panini World Cup France 98 Official Sticker Album is an absolute shiny-fest! The France '98 logo, mascot and trophy all appear alongside the traditional 'Roll of Honour', in all their shiny glory. The mascot for this year's tournament is a blue and red cockerel, if you look closely you can see his studs. Page 2 is the tournament programme showing fixtures and leaving space for scores to be filled in, then on the facing page are stickers for 9 stadiums that are hosting the games.

Panini World Cup 98 France No.35 ( teams start with Group A and Brazil, the left side of the page shows the shiny logo, landscape and team photo, with 16 squad football stickers arranged in neat rows. Each sticker has a brief section of vital statistics below it, then there is space for a small section explaining how the team qualified. USA, Jamaica and Iran only get a single page each, so these feature two players per sticker, and they are arranged landscape.

As with other Panini albums, the England team are all picture in 'logo-free' plain white tops, with a bodged together shiny badge. This is because the FA license the England football rights to Topps/Merlin instead.
