France's Laurent Blanc scored the first World Cup golden goal in 1998

BBC Sport counts down 100 of the greatest World Cup moments, as the 2014 tournament in Brazil draws nearer.

Today looks back to the 1998 World Cup second-round match between France and Paraguay, when French defender Laurent Blanc made history by scoring the first ever World Cup golden goal to send the hosts through to the quarter-finals.

The golden goal rule - where the first goal scored in extra-time would end the match - was introduced by Fifa to make extra-time periods more exciting, but it was scrapped after the 2002 World Cup.
