    That offside was really, really close. I have to see the replay again.

    Anyone who thinks soccer is boring needs to watch this game.

    Another dive by the French side to draw a free kick. Big moment here.

    I agree with that. Very exciting.

    I think a couple things about soccer that drive away the American audience is all of the diving, and how much control of the outcome the referee has.

    Two things we're taught as young athletes is that when you're fouled/hit hard, walk it off; and that referees/umps should never decide the outcome.

    I really hope this doesn't end in penalties.

    Amazing save by Buffon. But France has been the better team today.

    Zidane red carded. He's out and rightly so. What a cheap shot. Wow. I hardly expected that from him. Classless.

    Good riddance, Zizoo.

    DAMN! That might be the most hardcore head-butt I've EVER seen, WWF included!

    Zidane shown the Red. Unfortunate end for Zidane.

    No dive there. That was one of the strangest things I've ever seen (or that I can recall). So late in the game...his last game at that???

    Yeah seriously. It looked like they had some words... Zidane starts to walk away... the Italian player continues to jaw at him... Zidane circles around him and plants his fore-head into the guy's chest

    I really wonder what they were saying to one another.

    Italy wins on penalties 5-3.

    Very sad and disappointing end for France and Zinedine Zidane.

    I really wonder what they were saying to one another.

    This just in....... Zidane, in an amazing interview with ESPN's crack investigative reporter Pedro Gomez, admits that he was taunted into his sissy head butt which brought the red card and national disgrace to his team.

    "He called me a Jim Edmonds flopper!!!!!!" exclaimed Zidane. "What else could I do?"

    Especially considering that it meant Zidane wasn't available to take one of France's PKs.

    He really hurt his side with a stupid and selfish play.

    Sad to see Zidane go out like that, but it's easily the best in-game headbutt I've ever seen delivered, regardless of the sport. Materazzi's lucky he didn't get his ribs cracked.

    As for the game, I'm guessing the Italians could have shot all day and Barthez couldn't have stopped them. The game was won when the French fell asleep for 12 minutes after that first goal. Outside of that brief spell, France completely dominated them.
