Roger Lemerre's France side entered UEFA EURO 2000™ hoping to become the first reigning world champions to lift the European crown.
However, plenty of nations stood in their way, not least two hosts, as for the first time Belgium and the Netherlands combined forces to stage the tournament, now firmly established as a 16-team event. Indeed, the Dutch and the French were drawn in the same group along with former winners Denmark and 1996 finalists the Czech Republic - who won all their qualifiers.
Spain heavily tipped
Norway and Sweden were also impressive in qualifying, while Spain were strongly fancied after sailing through. Some sides had more nervous preperations - Italy, Romania and Yugoslavia, like France, qualified by a single point, and the holders Germany by two.
Auld Enemies play off
There were also four play-offs for group runners-up, with England's meeting with Scotland the highlight. England won the first leg 2-0 in Glasgow, just as well as Scotland triumphed 1-0 at Wembley and could well have turned the tie around. England were then drawn to meet their 1996 nemeses, Germany, in their group, along with Romania and Portugal.
Slovenia earn debut
Israel and Ukraine were denied tournament debuts by Denmark and Slovenia - who themselves earned a berth for the first time - while in a tight tie fast-improving Turkey pipped the Republic of Ireland.
