Sometimes champions are so arrogant, they deserve to lose. The French were favorites to repeat in 2002 after their 1998 success and Euro 2000 triumph. Defender Marcel Desailly even told his family not to bother coming to Asia until the later rounds, so easy would their progress be. Senegal, who'd never qualified before, didn't read the script and won the opener 1-0. The French went home after three games without scoring a goal. Sacré Bleus!
