Question about 1998 Ford Escort
There may be a possibility the cable has snapped, however Ford used a ratchet and pawl set up on the Escort which is made of plastic! when it reaches its full tension (Self Adjusting) it can break leaving you with a baggy soppy floppy clutch pedal. So a clutch replacement is NOT required!
If the cable has broken you should be able to see from under the Bonnet/hood as it is situated on top of the gearbox Bell housing. Again a Clutch is NOT needed.
Hope this sorts it?

Ummm No. A 98 Escort is a hydraulic set-up, many times the mater or slave clutch cylinders wear out causing you to think that the clutch itself is shot, that might be the case but check the master and slave cylinders for leakage first
