Six minutes of separation

Norway 2 Brazil 1

It was a Tore Andre Flo-inspired performance.

Norway, desperately needing a win, scored two goals in the last eight minutes to upset defending champions Brazil in a Group A match at Marseille in 1998.

With its future in the World Cup down to eight minutes, Norway scored twice, including a controversial penalty kick that Kjetil Rekdal converted in the 89th-minute, to stun Brazil 2-1.

Flo had scored the equalizer with a remarkable individual effort in the 83rd minute after Bebeto had put Brazil in the lead 12 minutes from time. 

The result ensured Norway reached the second round of the World Cup for the first time in three tries.

Brazil had already guaranteed themselves top spot in the group.

However, the holders accepted their folly.

"We came in overconfident against a rival we didn't know how would play against us," Brazilian coach Mario Zagallo admitted after the match.
