What went through the minds of Bruno Bellone and Carlosin the heat of the moment following the former's incredible penalty in the shoot-out between France and Brazil? Why did Uruguay's Jose Charly Batistareceive the fastest red card in the tournament's history? How far did the Argentinians' superstitions stretch?

You can find out the answers to all of these questions and many more thanks to the week-long series of exclusive interviews and special materials that we will be bringing you from this Wednesday up until 29 June, the date on which Argentina famously lifted the Trophy 30 years ago.
