Tournament favorites Brazil, who have won eleven straight matches in the World Cup, take on the last team to beat them, France.
It was back in the championship game in Paris in 1998 when France used a pair of goals from Zinedine Zidane to win 3-0. It was the third meeting between the two teams in World Cup play. Brazil beat France in the 1958 semis, 5-2. The two teams met again in the 1986 quaterfinals in Mexico. It was a 1-1 draw, but France advanced on penalties. Then came the 1998 final.
But in 2002, Brazil won it all, while France couldn't score a goal in three matches and went home early.
France did not score a goal in its opening match against Switzerland (a draw) and then played a 1-1 draw with Korea and beat Togo 2-0. The French were expected to bow out against Spain in the round of 16, but the French showed that they aren't dead yet with a 3-1 win.
Brazil has wins over Croatia, Australia, Japan, and Ghana. France should be the toughest opponent Brazil has faced.
No entrant in the Griddle contest picked France to win. Not everyone had Brazil. There were a few choices for Spain.
