Hmmm, never heard anyone say that before. I thought the 1998 team really had only one good game and that was against the US. The rest they looked desperately like they could have used a true game breaker. In 2002 their arc was an incline, which it is supposed to be as the tournament goes on and the games get tougher. Head to head I can't see how that 1998 team could beat 2002
