Michel Platini admits 1998 World Cup draw was designed to make France vs Brazil final possible

Former UEFA president Michel Platini has revealed that the 1998 World Cup draw was designed so that the host nation didn't meet Brazil until the final. "When we organised the calendar, we did a little maneuvering," he told France Bleu Sport . "If we finished first in the group and Brazil finished first, we could not meet before the final." "We did not get bored for six years to organise the World Cup to not do some little shenanigans," continued Platini. "You think that the others did not do it for their World Cup? France-Brazil in the final, it was the dream of everyone."
