On 9th July, the FIFA World Cup 2006 final was
played between France and Italy at the
Olympiastadion, Berlin Germany. The match
started with each side scoring goals within the first
20 minutes. First Zinedine Yazid Zidane scored by
converting a controversial seventh-minute penalty
kick. After that Marco Materazzi levelled the scores
in the 19th minute courtesy a corner. Both teams
had chances to score the winning goal in normal
Luca Toni then hit the crossbar in the 35th minute
for Italy, and later had a header disallowed for
offside, while France were not granted a possible
second penalty in the 53rd minute. France
appeared to be the side with better chances to
win because of the higher number of shots on
goal, however they were unable to capitalise. At
the end of the regulation 90 minutes, the score
was still level at 1-1, and now the match was
forced into extra time.
As the French striker Zinedine Zidane and Italian
defender Marco Materazzi jogged up the pitch in
close proximity of each other, they briefly exchanged
words after which Materazzi was seen tugging at
Zidane's jersey before Zidane began to walk away
from him. Moments later, Zidane popularly
nicknamed Zizou, suddenly stopped, turned around
and rammed his head into Materazzi's chest,
knocking him to the ground.
Although play was halted, referee Horacio
Elizondo did not appear to have seen the
confrontation. After consulting his assistants,
Elizondo issued Zidane a red card in the 110th
minute. It marked the 14th overall expulsion of
Zidane's career. He also became the fourth
player red-carded in a World Cup final, in addition
to being the first sent off in extra time.
