Italy wins the World Cup!
In double overtime, Italy won the World Cup against France. Tied 1-1 at the end of the second overtime period, Italy won the kickoff to win the World Cup, 2006.
In a shocking development, Zidane of France, in the final game of his career, was ousted from the game for head butting an opposing player. The other players seemed not to take his example to heart, though.
This non-athletic American was surprised, at first, that Italy wore the blue jerseys and France wore the white. Once I got that straight, I was ok!
All in all, I find soccer much more exciting to watch than American football and I'm glad it was on network tv in the States.
