Confederations Cup 2003 – France

Confederations Cup 2003 – France

The 6th edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup was played in France from the 18th – 29th June 2003. Eight teams took part in the tournament across only three venues in France, and the hosts ended up as winners although the final stages of the competition were overshadowed by the tragic death of Cameroon midfielder Marc-Vivien Foe at the Stade de Gerland in Lyon during the semi final against Colombia.

The qualified teams were: France (hosts and Euro 2000 winners), Brazil (World Cup 2002 WINNERS), Japan (Asian Cup 2000 winners), Colombia (Copa America 2001 winners), United States (CONCACAF Gold Cup 2002 winners), Cameroon (African Cup of Nations 2002 winners), Turkey (World Cup 2002 Third Place team – after Germany, Italy and Spain had rejected the chance to take part) and New Zealand (OFC Nations Cup 2002 winners).
