ITALY 1 (5) – (3) 1 FRANCE, JULY 9, 2006
The 2006 World cup will be remembered as the last crusade for one of the greatest midfielder to ever bless the game, Zinedine Zidane. Tempted out of retirement Zidane, Thuram and Makelele along aw the 2006 world cup as one last push for glory and did they come close.
after a somewhat lacklustre start in the group stages, it was in the knockouts that france upped their game. Zidane put up a masterclass against Brazil in the quarter-final, a match that would be soon remembered as one of his best. But his most stand out moment from a rollercoaster of a world cup campaign for zidane would be his infamous headbutt on Materazzi.
In the 2006 World Cup final in Berlin on July 9, 2006, with France and Italy locked at 1-1 in extra time, the great Zinedine Zidane — playing in his last-ever match as a player — wandered past Azzurri defender Marco Materazzi. Amid the din of a tense Olympiastadion, thousands in Berlin and millions worldwide watched on as the Frenchman exchanged words with the Italian. Time seemed to freeze as Zidane held his opponent’s gaze, locked, loaded, and unleashed an extraordinary headbutt straight into Materazzi’s sternum. It earned Zidane — one of the most decorated players of his time and a god among Les Bleus and Real Madrid fans alike — a red card as he marched furiously past the World Cup trophy, an ignomous end to his playing career.
