Rawe, you're thinking of Trezeguet and if it wasn't for Buffon Italy wouldn't have even made it onto penalties. Anyway, France only went 1 up because they got a penalty which was the most obvious dive ever. He wasn't even touched, and Italy's second goal, the player that was offside didn't touch the ball and, according to FIFA's new rules the ball is only offside if it is touched by an offside player.
Anyway, about Zidane. Materazzi said, according to Italian newspapers "Une filia de puta" or something which means "Son of a prostitute" and in Italy that isn't offensive. Zidane should know that after he's playing in Serie A for Juventus. What I don't understand is that, when De Rossi elbowed an American nobdy asked De Rossi if the American said anything which he might have done. Sentence removed for offensive content, and racial slur. This type of thing will NOT be tolerated at GeeksToGo
I don't know why but nobody can take Italy winning. They hope they lose because they know that when Italy is on form ( The match against Germany - what a game ) they can beat any team out there and they proved that, so I think instead of talking about Zidane and Materazzi, why not just say well done Italy and leave it. You Americans talk about Materazzi because you didn't even get through the group stages.
The only people that deserve to get headbutted are you people that can't take losing so you have to talk about the winning team. Maybe if Zidane headbutted him there and then it would have been normal but he turned round, ran off, looked for the referee then headbutted him. He only headbutted Materazzi because he was stressed. Materazzi was on him the whole game and barely let him touch the ball. I think, that instead of watching the news you people should actually WATCH the game
I don't care what Materazzi said,
WELL DONE ITALY!!!!!!!!!!
