These 7 seconds
Poor Zizou. I can understand why he did it- we don't know exactly what Materazzi said but it must have been serious enough to warrant the 34 year old veteran to lose his cool. It is sad though because France was out playing Italy, there was only 10 minutes left in the game and up until the conclusion of that world cup final, Italy had had a horrible shoot out record. Zidane would have made his shot for sure.
I imagine he will regret what he did.
Then again, maybe not. He had a long and glorious football career- easily the best player of his generation and probably one of the best ever.
Long live Zinedine Zidane.
