The first goal: Dugarry beats Westerveld to the ball

0 mins: The game begins with a top class French reserve side needing a draw or a win to win the group, while full strength Holland require a victory to stay on home soil for the remainder of the tournament.

5 mins: A Dennis Bergkamp free kick is headed towards goal by Phillippe Cocu, but French keeper Bernard Lama saves with his tracksuited legs.

7 mins: Johan Micoud's corner is headed into the net by Christophe Dugarry. Dutch keeper Sander Westerveld came out for the cross but missed it completely.

40 mins: After a scrappy 10 minutes, Holland win a corner and exert some pressure - but the French hang on to their lead.

47 mins: Dugarry spins in behind a square Dutch defence but with only Westerveld to beat, the French striker's shot is turned away by the keeper's legs.

51 mins: Patrick Vieira fouls Edgar Davids and Frank de Boer steps up to take a free kick from 35 yards. The shot beats the wall, and Lama can only push it into the roof of the net.
