I find this kinda hard to believe.

But I agree with whoever said that if Zidane hadn't been given the red card, the match would have ended with the same result.

Of course, Buffon isn't going to deny that he went for accusing Zidane.
That was quite clear from the way he was walking around the field after the incident.
Absolutely no doubt about it.
The TV images speak for itself.
To deny would be stupid.

Perhaps that explains why this whole tournament wasn't really exciting to me.
Quite boring actually.

Zidane = psycho.
I don't care what was said to him. He could have answered with WORDS instead of hitting him.

#*#$&#$&!!!

I'll be infuriated if Materazzi really did try to grab Zizou's shoulder! Everyone could tell Zidane was hurting - in fact, at one point, he was pointing to his shoulder and giving the sign tohis coach to change him but he played on. In pain.

If he's being forced to play and he's in pain and someone deliberately aggravates the source of his pain well then, I can *almost* understand why he got physical on the guy. What a low blow from the Italian.

Anyone who knows Zidane knows this is kind out of character for him - he's known to be a shy, gentle guy who's lost his cool on the pitch before.

Now I've seen over and over , there was definitely it , Materazzi did something with his right arm/shoulder , check out that Mat remains with his right arm kind of up still doin somethin , Zidane then looks at him shoulder and makes a gesture with his hand like sayin "Why u did that " ....

If it's the true that was something LOW from the italian , and He should've gotten the red card as well

Hehehe!

On second thought, it might be better to speak of a disappointing instead of a boring tournament.

The begin (group matches) were promising.
But the follow up was not great.

That seems to be the overal problem.

'Cause I can't say that the players of the games I saw, weren't trying or working hard.
It just didn't result in anything.
No goals (or only one).
That must have been frustrating/disappointing for the players as well.

And for the organization too.
There has been high praise for that.
And for the great atmosphere.
It's really a shame that the soccer was a let down.
Brilliance was absent!
At least as far as I can tell.

Of course, this is just my personal view and opinion.

There were 148 or so goals, 1900 nearly goals, and 12000 fouls in this World Cup.

Yeah, the games weren't the best. The coaches should try to play differently the next time, more offensive. This is boring.
So the World Cup was not meidocre as hell, but also it wasn't the to good.

Italy was really exhausted, Domenech could have won the gam if he put some more strikers in earlier in the second half.

But he didn't, and so it was decided by penalties. That's all about luck, and Trezeguet didn't have luck.

What Zidane did was very crazy and I don't understand it. I heard it wasn't the first time he knocked someone out when he thought nobody would see. He's a great player, but like e.g. Figo he has his very special moments.
If the red card was based on video evidence or something like that I would support it because the players have to learn that the don't just can do what they want when nobody watches.
The lineman didn't wave the flag, but I don't think he told the referee to give the red card based on what Buffon said.
You just can't do that. An Italian was on the ground, then you can't give a red card when another Italian player tells you what happened.

Someone said France lost because the replacement of Zidane, Trezeguet, didn't hit. But that's wrong because Trezeguet didn't replace Zidane. He got in before that incident, and he would have done the penalty nonetheless. Maybe he would have hit, but that's only speculation.

The party here in Germany was just great. And all the people who came from all over the world said they were overwhelmed by how nice we Germans were and how great we have partied all the time, doesn't matter whether we had played or another country.
That's great, and the Germans should be very happy that everything went so well.
congratulations to Italy, and of course to France as well. I know when you're in a final you're never happy to lose, but still it is the second place in one of the most important sporting tournaments of the world.
