Senegal 1, France 0

1 Jun 2002 /

In a historic upset, Senegal, making its first appearance in World Cup competition, defeats France, the defending champs.

Senegal was a French colony until 1960.

Ironically, France has previously scored a number of impressive victories against the African colonies, although it must be noted that they were competing with guns against spears in those matchups.
