World Cup 2002 - Denmark - Senegal
First timers at the finals, Senegal shocked holders France with a 1-0 win in the opening game. In their second game they were down 1-0 to Denmark when they equalized with a sweeping move that started in their own penalty area.
The went on to eliminate Sweden, then finally losing to Turkey in extra time in the quarter finals. The only other African team to progress that far was Camaroon in 1990. Can an African team do better in South Africa on their home continent?
