Zidane wins the Golden Ball despite headbutting Italian player Marco Materazzi. I cheered for France yesterday and am a big fan of Zidane, but still think what he did was inexcusable and deserved a red card. I’d been thinking about that moment all day long, just wondering what might have Materazzi said to him!? I feel very sorry for Zidane that he had to end his career this way. I think his action cost France the world cup, but still think he’s one of the greatest players of our time and deserves the Golden Ball.
This is what happened yesterday
This is the guy – Marco Materazzi, who provoked Zidane
