    those 2 teams that didn't qualify for the WC how would you rate the talent of those teams compared to the 98 and 2000 teams that won championships

    90 I don't remember the level of the team, but in 1994, the team was great and we we could have made a great world cup:

    Lama, Desailly, Roche, Blanc, Angloma, Petit, Deschamps, Le Guen, Sauzée, Guérin, Pedros, Djorkaef, Ginola, Papin, Cantona...
    the team made good qualifications, two match for taking 1 point(France-Israel, France-Bulgaria), we loose the first match with no chance and without a good spirit, and the last match: 1-0 by Cantona, the team become too confident, 5 minutes after goal for Bulgaria by kostadinov, the team play the end of the match very scary, and at the last second kostadinov close us the door of the world cup, what a nightmare!
    so sad to not have seen this beautifull team at the world cup...

    Even today 9 years after it is still a nightmare. I am convinced this 94 team could have gone all the way and win it.
    Papin and Cantona both at their peak,may be the best pair of forwards we ever had.
    It should have been Papin's world cup. So sad.
