2006 Championship World Cup Final Highlights - Sunday, July 9th
Italy 2006 World Cup Champions
Betting Highlights on the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final Championship
The 2006 FIFA World Cup Finals was on Sunday, July 9th. Italy took on France at Berlin's Olympic Stadium. It was a World Cup Final to remember. Both teams played superb defense. Zinedine Zidane scored the first goal in the 00:06 minute on a penalty shot. Italy's Mattarazi quickly answered with a header at 00:19 to equalize. France came out strong in the second half, always driving and keeping the pressure on but it was not enough. The match ended in a draw at the end of regulation.
In overtime, Zidane went out in the 01:10 after receiving a red card for head-butting Italian defender Mattarazi in the chest, knocking him down. 1800-sports.com's insiders are reporting the fight was because Mattarazi reminded Zidane, "You're Algerian, not French!" Zidane's ejection will end his successful international career tarnished. His actions would prove to be costly for France in the penalty kick round. This was the first World Cup Finals to be decided by penalty kicks since the 1994 World Cup Finals when Brazil beat Italy. In the end, Trezeguet hit the cross bar and missed for France and Fabio Grosso scored the final penalty to give Italy the 2006 FIFA World Cup Title.
