fifa world cup 2006 posterGroup C followed the form book with Argentina and Netherlands both qualifying for the knock out phase. Côte d'Ivoire made their first World Cup finals appearance while Serbia & Montenegro had competed in the 1998 tournament as Yugoslavia. Their defeat against Côte d'Ivoire in their final group match was the last fixture played by the team because Montenegro had formally declared its independence a week earlier.
