Zidane must have simply forgotten where the ball was.. Perhaps it was in an alternate reality :)
Based on their performance throughout the tournament (except the USA game) Italy deserved to win the Cup. France did really well, especially in the final. Henry didn't score as i expected.. but the italian defence was superb.
My starting XI (2nd XI) of the World Cup:
1 - Ricardo (Buffon) - Portugal (Italy)
2 - Zambrotta ( Miguel) - Italy (Portugal)
3 - Grosso (Lahm) - Italy (Germany)
4 - Thuram (Mensa) - France (Ghana)
5 - Cannavaro (Toure) - Italy (Ivory Coast)
6 - Gattuso (Viera) - Italy (France)
7 - Ribery (Schweinsteiger) - France (Germany)
8 - Zidane (Pirlo) - France (Italy)
9 - Henry (Podolski) - France (Germany)
10 - Klose (Toni) - Germany (Italy)
11 - Ronaldo (Kaka) - Portugal (Brazil)
