    confederational representations as full internationals, match number
    102 should be deleted; however, as the French FA insists this match
    is a full international, FIFA decided on August 14, 2001, to count it
    as official after all.
 
(1) France win 5-4 on penalties.  
(2) France lost 5-6 on penalties.
