I love the drama these two created.
Of course they stoped playing soccer...
I think men are extremely emotional when they are exausted.
It is so ammusing to see the level of engement, if you aren't the target of the emotive punishment, of course. The funniest thing is that the italian has had similar encounters; dirty mouth?
Anyhow it seems some insulting allusions at Zidane's ethnicity was the cause...Where is Zidane version? This is the Italian version:
But last night Materazzi's agent Phil Smith revealed the Italian's version of what happened. He said it began when Materazzi grabbed the Frenchman's shirt, pinching his nipple. "If you want my shirt so much, then you can f...... have it after the game," Zidane supposedly said."I'd rather have the shirt off your woman," Materazzi responded, a reference to Zidane's wife Veronique. Ka-boom. The opposite version, according to lipreaders, goes that moments after he had grabbed Zidane's shirt Materazzi said: "Hold on, wait, that one's not for c.... like you." "We all know you are the son of a terrorist whore."
Then, just before the butt, he said: "So just f... off."
Italian newspapers claim that Zidane started the tit-for-tat insults by insulting Materazzi's mother, who died when he was young.
Zidane's sending-off continues to overshadow Italy's World Cup celebrations, with more than 400,000 Italians turning out to see their national team arrive home.
The big party was being held at Circus Maximus, an area for entertainment in ancient Rome, and the crowd is expected to grow rather than diminish in coming days.
The party will briefly numb the ongoing fallout from the match-fixing scandal that threatens the game in Italy.
Already eight players from the Italy squad will have to be traded or play in Serie B next year after their club, Juventus, formally accepted relegation as punishment for its involvement in the scandal.
France also returned to a warm homecoming, with French president Jacques Chirac receiving the team and clearly bearing no ill-will against Zidane for the moment of madness that contributed to France's loss.
The French eventually lost on penalties, with Zidane unable to take part in the penalty shootout because of his dismissal. "You are a virtuoso, a genius of world football," Chirac told him.
"You are also a man of heart and conviction. That is why France admires and loves you.".I'm so curious about this version, and this other version
