Around 1000 fans gathered on July 7, 1998 at the Jardin Anglais on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva to watch the semi-final game between Brazil and Holland. A large tent had been set up with a big screen TV. Televisions were set up outside the tent and at a nearby restaurant to handle the large number of fans who came out to see this important and exciting match. A group of Brazilian drummers kept the crowd going inside the tent.
