In the 1998 World Cup held in France, Spain found themselves in a challenging group alongside Olympic champions Nigeria, South American qualifiers Paraguay, and the fourth-ranked team from the previous World Cup, Bulgaria. In their match against Nigeria, Spain initially took a 2-1 lead and had opportunities to extend it further. However, a crucial error by veteran goalkeeper Zubizareta, who scored an own goal, shifted the momentum, leading to Sunday Oliseh's decisive strike. Subsequently, Spain failed to secure a victory against Paraguay, and their hopes rested on defeating Bulgaria while also relying on Paraguay's result against Nigeria. Despite a convincing 6-1 win against Bulgaria, Paraguay's 3-1 victory over Nigeria, who fielded many reserve players, rendered Spain's triumph meaningless. Despite being one of the highest-scoring teams in the group stage, trailing only France, Spain was eliminated from the tournament. The competition also marked the end of Zubizareta's illustrious international career, which spanned a record 126 appearances.
