Oh my God, what a game. What a game! France scored first from a doubtful penalty, but Italy equalized shortly thereafter with a beautiful goal. Les grenuoilles then spent the rest of the game trying to break through the solid Italian defence. Italy had their chances but failed to score. Almost inevitably it went to extra time and then the dreaded penalty shootout.
Zidane - hero to zero. Unbelievable. What on earth was he thinking of when he head-butted an Italian player off the ball?
Next time out, Italy will need XXL shirts to fit the four gold stars on (one for each time they've won the World Cup).
