France had a rollercoaster journey in the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany. Despite a shaky start in the group stage, where they finished second in Group G behind Switzerland, they managed to advance to the knockout stage.

In the Round of 16, France faced Spain and won 3-1, showcasing a resurgence in form. However, their journey hit a major obstacle in the quarterfinals when they faced Brazil, the defending champions. France delivered a stunning performance, defeating Brazil 1-0 with a goal from Thierry Henry, and advanced to the semifinals.

In the semifinals, France faced Portugal in a closely contested match. The game ended in a 1-1 draw after extra time, and France emerged victorious in the penalty shootout, winning 3-1 to book their place in the final.

The final, played on July 9, 2006, at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, saw France facing Italy in a highly anticipated match. The game ended 1-1 after extra time, with Marco Materazzi equalizing for Italy after Zinedine Zidane had given France the lead with a penalty kick. However, the final will be most remembered for Zidane's infamous headbutt on Materazzi in extra time, resulting in a red card for Zidane in his final professional match. Italy eventually won the final 5-3 on penalties, leaving France as the runners-up of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

In the 2006 FIFA World Cup, France had several key players who played pivotal roles in their journey to the final:

  1. Zinedine Zidane: Zidane was the captain of the French national team and one of the most influential players in the tournament. His leadership, creativity, and skill on the ball were crucial for France throughout the World Cup. He scored important goals, including a penalty in the final, before his controversial red card.

  2. Thierry Henry: Henry was one of the top strikers in the world at that time and played a vital role in France's attacking lineup. He scored goals and provided assists, including a crucial goal against Brazil in the quarterfinals.

  3. Lilian Thuram: Thuram was a stalwart in the French defense and played a key role in organizing the backline. His experience and defensive prowess were crucial in helping France navigate through tough matches.

  4. Patrick Vieira: Vieira was a midfield powerhouse known for his physical presence and ability to control the midfield. He provided stability in midfield and played a crucial role in both defensive and offensive phases of the game.

  5. Fabien Barthez: Barthez was the goalkeeper for France and provided crucial saves when needed. His experience and composure between the posts were important for France's defensive solidity.
