Zidane strikes again !!!!!

Well may be only a penalty could have finished the game in 90 minutes, else we might have once again reached the penalty shootouts.

32 minutes into the game and here comes the refree awarding a penalty to the French much to the dislike of portugese.

Though Ricardo, considered as the man who can stop any penalty( and yes he did jump in the right direction) could not do much to the lightning fast power shot by Zidane, and there it was the first goal of the match which also turned out be the last of the semi-finals at the FIFA 2006.

This also brought the dream run of Luiz Fillpe Scolari to an end, with a defeat after 12 victories in a row at the world cups.

Now portugal meets Germany on saturady for 3rd and 4th position.

But on the big day ( sunday the 9th ) we see Italy vs France. France chasing its 2nd and Italy its 4th cup.
