What a match!!! Hot hot hot even as early as the first minutes into the match. Italy seemed to completely lose the leadership and possession over the ball early on though. They were beat and dragging most of the time which was painful to watch. I really think France lost because of Zizou today. Very badly done on the part of the soccer knight. I still can’t understand why he would decide to end his carrier on such a bad note. I guess he's not leaving in style after all. It’s also always disappointing to end it with penalty kicks. Nonetheless, at one point or another during the game, both teams played wonderfully. Buffon’s goal was as tight as ever. If it weren’t for him and the strong defense that the Italians mostly relied on, Italy would’ve been history. Gattuso, my favorite player today, was quite ferocious. Camoranesi put on quite a show (did he actually cut his hair when they won?) and Cannavaro was just exquisite, as usual. I still don’t understand what happened with Totti there. In the end, they're world champions and it’s over. Yalla kill mondial we into bkheir.
