I think Zidane wanted to be sent off. End his career with a bang as only the 4th player to be sent off in a World Cup final.

Seriously, watching the clip it was far too deliberate to be anything else.

I must admit to thinking along those lines.
When you watch the replay you can see him laughing as he's walking away from the italian player.
I am guessing he said, "lets give em something to really talk about" That or the guy had a feeling it was heading to penalties and got cold feet. ;D

We also know that italian players are usually very fair-play

WHAT?!  They do as many dives as Cristiano Ronaldo!


But in the end, I think we can all agree that the Italian player should be honored to have a bruised sternum from an all-time great.

Apparently Zidane was reacting to a Racial Slur by Materazzi.

In the same time I have to admit it's very strange for yes, they were still smiling ten seconds bvefore it happened and Zidane didn't say anything to the other player before hitting him

Read my reply on the other thread...

Latest on BBC radio was that lip reading experts think the insult may have involved a sister... ::) ;) ;D
