Italy are Champions!!!!
I was so shocked by what Zidane did that I just did not feel like putting up this post.Well,the real reason is my college started and I could not find time to do the useless stuff that I’ve been doing on this page.
Well,thats what happened,Italy beat France 5-3 on penalties in a match that was full of drama as Zidane headbutted Materazzi in the closing stages of the game and had himself sent off,only to miss the penalties and become a WC villain.
For me,Zidane would always remain the best thing that has happened to football since Pele and Maradona and the best European footballer ever to have played the game.Long live Zizou.You rock.You managed to do,well,everything possible.!!
Germans finish a deserving third!!
Germany beat Portugal 3-1 with two stunning strikes from Bastian Schweinsteigger to finish third in the FIFA World Cup 2006.
A team that surprised one and all,including its own fans brought together by a passionate Jurgen Klinssman,brough life into German football after a long time.
Two stalwarts of the game,Oliver Kahn and Luis Figo,bid adieu to the international stage after having a good game.
France into the finals of WC 2006
France reached the finals of the FIFA World Cup 2006 by beating Portugal 1-0 with a penalty goal in the 33rd minute converted by WC ’98 hero Zinadine Zidane.
France now face Italy in the finals to be played on Sunday and Zizou would be looking for bidding adieu with a splendid performance in the World Cup.The third place match would be played out on Saturday between Germany and Portugal.
