Congratulations to the Azzurri, the 4 time World Champions in a shootout. They opened the door for Les Bleus when Zidane converted a penalty kick in the 7th minute, but tied it up on a header by Materazzi off a corner in the 19th minute. And the score was still tied after 120 minutes.
I was rooting for Les Bleus right up to the Zidane headbutt, when the match suddenly deflated for me. After that, I was just rooting for a score to keep it from going to penalty kicks.
