VIDEO: Fortune recalls Bafana Bafana's World Cup debut


On June 12, 1998, Bafana Bafana made their FIFA World Cup debut in Marseille against a star-studded France side.


The moment proved too big as the hosts ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, with Christophe Dugarry and Thierry Henry scoring either side of a Pierre Issa own-goal.


A then 19-year-old Quinton Fortune reflects on the match - the nerves, the magnitude of the occasion, and playing against his heroes.
