Stade de France

The new stadium that replaced the Parc de Princes was officially opened in 1997 and hosted France's successful football World Cup the following year.

Les Bleus have struggled to make the state-of-the-art stadium as daunting a venue as its predecessor - with only three wins in 11 games.
