Italy has won! It was a good game, not as I expected it to be. Both sides played well and well into extra time, but Italy was flawless with their penalties, too good for France. It was unfortunate that Zidane had to go off — it all seems pretty senseless to me why he did it. I suppose this will be analyzed to the death in the next few days and perhaps he will speak more on this in days to come but for now it’s great puzzle why he head-butted Materazzi the way he did.
I was supporting France all the way but Italy deserved this win for their professional way of handling the game. And to top it off with their domestic league problems. What an interesting World Cup it has been!
Another month before the Premiership starts again. Time to rest for football I suppose. Lots of catching up to do for other stuff.
