In the tournament in France 1998, politics and football once again collided: USA faced Iran. Since the Iranian revolution in 1979, relations between the two countries had become hostile. But on the pitch; football overcame aggression. The two sides had a joint team photo taken and the game itself was a fair match that Iran won 2-1. USA was eliminated, but despite this the players recognised the part they played in a historic match. "We did more in 90 minutes than the politicians did in 20 years," said US defender Jeff Agoos at the time. As in the national motto of France – Fraternité – the players on the pitch showed that football can unite. Hosts France won the tournament with a 3-0 win against Brazil in the final.
