France's first 'golden generation' emerged in the immediate post-war years and peaked with a wonderful showing at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. Featuring a brilliant forward line with playmaker Raymond Kopa, winger Jean Vincent and Just Fontaine at centre forward, France played delightful free-flowing and free-scoring football. The absence of key defender Robert Jonquet played a part in the high-flying French meeting their match in Brazil who defeated them 5-2 at the semi-final stage. Their tournament still ended on a high note as third place overall was secured in some style thanks to a crushing 6-2 victory over West Germany. Fontaine scored four times in that game to take his tournament total to 13, a record that stands to this day.
