The 2002 World Cup was the 17th edition of the tournament and was jointly hosted by South Korea and Japan, making it the first tournament held in Asia as well as the last World Cup to use the controversial “Golden goal” rule which settled the Euro 2000 Championships.

Defending Champions France were surprisingly eliminated in the group stages despite having a favourable group consisting of Denmark, Senegal and Uruguay in contrast to both Japan and Korea who topped their respective groups with 7 points each.

Japan were eliminated in the first round of 16 by Turkey but South Korea, who were arguably the surprise package of the tournament, made it to the semi-final defeating Italy and Spain before being edged out by Germany 1 nil in Seoul.

Brazil defeated Germany 2 nil in the final via a brace from Ronaldo, with the match held at the International Stadium Yokohama, Japan.
