The End Of A Legend (2006-07-13)
There are rumors of that Italian player Marco Materazzi saying
racial slur or calling terrorist-related names at Zidane, but head
butting his opponent
was never the answer to the problem (well, at least not in front of the
and over a billion viewers worldwide anyway). He has no
one to blame but himself.
I have always liked Zidane, he is a truly gifted footballer. If he had not lost control of his temper and used his noggin on more pressing matter such as scoring a header goal for France, or even just hanging on till the penalty shootout, the outcome of the Final could've been very different. He could've then thumbed his nose at Materazzi and sneered, "la la la la la la". Many people would have been happy to see that, I know I would.
