The format of the competiton stayed the same as in the 1998 World Cup; thirty-two teams were split into eight groups of four. Sixteen teams (eight group winners and eight second place finishers) would qualify for the knockout competition. The 2002 Football World Cup was held from May 31 through June 30 at various venues throughout South Korea and Japan. ... The 1998 Football World Cup was held in France by the FIFA decision in July 1992. ...


The tournament featured the unexpected early elimination of many of the most highly regarded teams, with France, Portugal, and Argentina not surviving the first round and Italy and Spain defeated by South Korea during the knockout phase. Co-hosts South Korea became the first Asian country to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup, and co-hosts Japan reached the second round of the tournament before losing to Turkey. Particularly notable were enthusiasm of the "Red Devils", the generic name for South Korean football fans. During the tournament, the entire nation became a sea of red and was a driving force behind South Korea's home-field advantage.


For the very first time in the Cup's history, teams from each of Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and Asia reached the quarter-finals. It was also the first World Cup that China, Ecuador, Senegal, and Slovenia participated in.


In the end, the finals saw the all-time World Cup winning country, Brazil, defeat the team with the second-best World Cup record, Germany, 2-0 for their record fifth title. The 2002 final was the first time Brazil and Germany had ever faced one another at a World Cup. Ronaldo, who suffered a famously poor final four years earlier, was the hero for the Seleção, scoring both goals of the game. He ended up with a total of eight goals in the tournament – the most in a FIFA World Cup since Gerd Müller scored ten times in Mexico ‘70 - and won the Golden Boot. There is some dispute as to whether Ronaldo scored against Costa Rica, as it was shown on television that he didn't touch the ball, but it was awarded to him. Ronaldo gives an interview in Brazil Luís Nazário de Lima Ronaldo (b. ...
