Only 5 coaches have won matches against their home country. Frenchman Bruno Metsu, in charge of Senegal, has produced the biggest upset to date. His team beat defending world champions France in the opening game of the 2002 World Cup.
Against all odds
Facing their homeland, coaches have lost 11 of 19 games in World Cup history. Zico, a legend in Brazil, could do little but watch in 2006 as his Japan team lost 4-1 to the South Americans.
