World Cup 2006 has ended this morning with Italy as the champion after having a penalty shootout win over France 5-3, but i just saw the worst ending match for a player who decided to retired from all international matches. Yes, you may have guessed it, Zinedine Zidane, who was predicted to achieve the golden ball award, being sent off after giving a head butt on Materazzi's chest. I don't know the reason why he did that, but that was a shock for many France fans, as Zidane never had problem with anybody. He always smile and very generous to everybody. People likes him so much and many player respect him.
That was a bad news to France who had lost Patrick Vierra for injury. They had lost two jendral on the field who should manage the ball flow and also the play. One more thing that i'm curious with was the substitution of Thienry Henry with Sylvain Wiltord even though they knew it would ended in penalty shootout and they do need Henry on that. It happened not only in France, but in some teams, such as England.
What has started has to be ended and the Germany FIFA World Cup 2006 has come to an end and we will see the next event in South Africa in the next four year. Who will be the champion? We will see in the next four year. We might not see some player, as they have decided to retired, but as the tradeoff, you might see new players on the field. One team that i'm sure will be a great team in South Africa is Germany. They had so much potential youngster in this tournaments and hopefully they will become more mature in the next four year.
