zidane gets red card, i get disappointed

Zizou remains a hero to the fans
Zidane's dismissal in extra-time for a head butt into the chest of Italy defender Marco Materazzi ensured he missed a tense penalty shootout which Italy won 5-3 and killed hopes of a fairytale ending to a glittering career.

i really enjoyed see france's zindane play his last matches during the world cup this year. that is, until late in the overtime of the final when he got into a row with an italian player. it resulted in a red card for zindane and - eventually - a loss for france.

actually, i suspect it was itally's plan to badger zidane to get him ejected from the match before he could have a chance to score again or kick in the penalty shoot out after overtime.

too bad it worked
