A Perfect Ending!

So as i thought, Italy beat France to become the World Champions! That was a perfect match, anyone could think for a World Cup Final!

First, France got the lead, with the help of Zidane, only in the seventh minute of the game! but the Italians were not behind, they levelled the score just ten minutes later. On seeing the score 1-1 tied just after 17 minutes of the game, i thought its gonna be a high scoring match, but the remaining time was filled with attacking, defending, tackling, falling, bruising, (Some HeadButting...) but no goal was scored even in the extra time and another match was stretched to the penalty shoot-outs!

Now, after seeing Zidane going out on using his head (as a missile, not for thinking!) it was almost a dreaded task for France to win, at that point of time, i was beginning to see Italy as the Champions then! And the same happened!
Italians kept their cool and beat the French men 5-3 in penalties.

Frankly I wasnt expecting that kind of behaviour by Zidane. This is your last match and you are doing that kinda things, one should expect from a rookie!

So another World Cup came to an end, will look forward to English Premier League now which is coming in august :)

The Grand Finale

So France made it to the final, well they deserved it. Zidane played superbly, as usual, and thanks to Thierry Henry (and Referee) that he earned France a penalty kick and Zidane made no mistake!

Now, France vs Italy in the FIFA World Cup 2006 Final, will France win or Italy, once again, will surprise us? We will see!

Another interesting match will be playoff between Germany and Portugal, the clash for the third place, most people say that teams in the playoffs didnt play upto the mark as they are already knocked out, it will be interesting to see, if it holds true...

Surprise, Surprise....

So, we see a lot of surprise results lately in the FIFA World Cup!

First, Brazil, the biggest of them all, lost to France, thanx to Zidane. That is acceptable, but Portugal beating England is completely surprising, i mean didnt they know how to kick the ball during penalty shoot-outs?? They missed 3 out of 5 penalty kicks, horrible!

And now Italy beat Germany in the extra time! But in that match, Germany was ill fated, they got many chances which can be turned into goals but they missed out somewhere! Ballack and Klose almost got their team lead, but they just missed out, the Italian defence was great.

Anyway, Lets see what happen in todays match - Portugal vs France.
I wont be surprised if Portugal beats the French men, but my bet will be on France!
