He has won the Golden Ball for best player in the tournament. I think Cannavaro might feel a little aggrieved.
deserves it for the single best penalty I have ever seen (especially for a World Cup Final) - awesome.
My top 3 would be
3. Materazzi (heh)
for that headbutt
for services over the last 10 years. he hasn't had the best world cup, played badly in the group stages etc.
i'd go for Cannavaro, Zidane and Gattuso in that order.
in world cup final. couldnt see anyone else doing that.
hes the best footballer ever in my opinion
would have been with Andrea Pirlo. I think. Quietly efficient.
I've also like Lilian Thuram or either of the Italian full-backs.
Zidane gets this, but Cristiano Ronaldo - who was actually the best young player of the tournament - is marked down, and thus not given an award he earned, because of his poor sportsmanship.
in Mexico - despite the 'hand of God' incident and being off his box on a shedload of coke (allegedly)
zidane just lost it once - to a total prick who i hate. people like materazzi shouldnt be allowed to play football.
yes yes "he shouldnt have reacted ect"
The only reason he shouldn't be allowed to play football is because he's shite.
Zidane was also suspended for a previous game in this tournament.
people who go around kicking people, shirt pulling, standing on feet, triping, verbally abusing...i.e cynical stuff.
zidane did get 2 yellows but he not a cynical player at all. he's no saint, but not cynical - he doesnt need to be.
i'm beggining to dislike a lot of footballers
Sky Sports News have just said that Materazzi called Zidane 'a terrorist'.
I just heard that too
but I wonder about the context
he can't just have said "Terrorist!"
sky is rubbish.
i'm convinced he said something about his brother - never seen him lose it so badly
I hope he'll get suspended for a looooooong time...
He has always been like that : the very little demonic part in him...
That said : since when are video and the fourth referee supposed to decide of what happen ?
they need to make up their minds
unless the ref requests it. The referee did not appear to request their assistance.
have ever such an average team won it? not argie 86 cos maradonna was outstanding. cannavaro played well yes, but no maradonna.
seriously though - it's just a shame that the tactical approach to a World Cup is not 'Play to win' but 'Play to not lose' - if you know what I mean
can fuck off
Your constant unhappiness with everything in the world around you is demeaning your complaints, dear Meths.
and zidanes my fave ever player - he's now gon past gascoigne and roger milla
though. It was one of th most engrossing games of football I've ever seen.
You don't need goals to have a great game. Fo shizzle.
football wise i'd have to go for france spain. i think.
most gutted about missing italy usa - that sounded like a cracker
just more exciting innit!
