Yeah Italy!

Italy's Materazzi must have said something seriously disturbing to France's Zidane in order for him to react the way he did. In case you missed it watch the clip below to see why France lost the World Cup.

trinibaby81, italy may be your team but materazzi is still a d-bag. materazzi deserves whatever he gets, but i seriously doubt the italian team will be penalized.

FIFA WORLD CUP UPDATE (for those of u who care)..The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has today (Thursday, 13 July 2006) opened disciplinary proceedings against Italian player Marco Materazzi. The proceedings were initiated in the light of initial statements from French player Zinedine Zidane who, having head-butted Materazzi during the final of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Berlin on 9 July, has since indicated in an interview that his actions came in response to repeated provocation from the Italian player. FIFA may ultimately impose harsh sanctions on Materazzi and/or the Italian team, up to and including disqualifying the Italian team if Materazzi's remarks were proven to be discriminatory or contemptuous. I think that France will be awarded the golden medal after all. Can't wait for this one!!

dr d you're just jealous that France has the best team in the world right now..Italians won but how? on penalty kicks, wow amazing something to be proud of LOL
Adriana42 Adriana42 10 years
Well he did what he did for a reason obviously. When you're the real deal and some wannabe insults you like that you just dont let it go. I bet if Ronaldinho insulted him like that(which is highly unlikely since that can only come from the Italian team) Zidane would have reacted differently, but that guy didnt even deserve to be on that field. Zidane was just emberassed to be playing against Italy in the final game altogether. You can't compare those two teams at all, it was an insult to France's team. I just heard on the news that Zidane indeed apologize for his behavior that day which I think he should have never done since he was attacked first. That slimy Italian player I cant believe how low they came in order to win that championship. I heard that they spent large sum of money in order to win some games and the ones they did win were on penalty kicks so I cant believe that anyone in their right mind would say that Italy deserved to win. You either never watched soccer before or you're just a biased idiot who doesn't even care about who plays better.

it probably got deleted because of all the foul language sheesh. and you are calloing people stupid these are big matter what is said to you during a game, you be the bigger person and dont resort to violence. trash talking in all forms has always been around, hell when i played soccer as a female youth player it happened and it was bad! he is a professional who should have shown professionalism in the face of verbal insults. if he is such a legend (which he is) he should act like one. i enjoyed watching him play this cup...he was awesome. anyway - glad italy won!

You're calling Zidane unprofessional for knocking M. out? What do you call M. for insulting Zidane .,Jealous classless craphole? Italy won on penalty kicks, does that make them a deserved champion. My ass, France played awesome and it was the length of the game that got them drained and that's why they couldnt score a goal in the end. Italy's game was soooo lame, my dad who rooted for Italy was so disappointed he walked out of the room and couldnt watch their lame ass play. Yeah they got the gold metal but lost many friends.
Adriana42 Adriana42 10 years
One more thing..Do you even know who Zidane is? He is the soccer legend and he can do whatever he wants. Even if the Italian never got up I would have still supported Zidane, because he is the king.

this is not about italy win. i was rooting for france just because i've been to their country. it has to do with the head butt. while i am not pro-violence, i think calling a muslim algerian-french man a terrorist in the post-9/11 world is woth a slap in the face. i've actually never seen someone head butt another person, so that was pretty awesome. it wasn't worth getting kicked out for. zidane should have saved that drama for after the game.
My god i cannot beleive he did that , what a loser!! i lvoe italy and im sooooooooo gald they won they played beautifully and scored beautiful goals in all tehre games!
sunnygirl2504 sunnygirl2504 10 years
lacoste, you are absolutely right! and italygal, you said in your last post what we all think is the problem here: you don't care about other people's opinions and there is no way to discuss important matters with you.
sunnygirl2504 sunnygirl2504 10 years
Cheers, JK!!! ;)

Hey italygal, is you father Trini as in Trinidad and Tobago? if so, wha happen now? also, i was just about to say that same thing about Zidane. he's been known to be a real hothead especially after stomping on that player back in '98.

zidane still got the gold ball.

I know I'm a late poster, but I haven't been able to read Pop as regularly as in the past, but guys, come all this really necessary? No one knows what was said to Zidane so we can speculate all we want. The media does that for us and stirs more problems and what have you. But please, this is PopSugar, can't we all be nice and accept each other? I don't like to come on here and read all these negative posts.

no matter what is said to you, you be the bigger person as a PROFESSIONAL player. he could have had the ultimate revenge...the cup. but no...nope. and henry? i would have kept him in the game until he could walk no more...he needed to be in the Pks!! anyway - this was a very interesting thread for sure :)
