This is soooo wrong.

In which case Zidane's behaviour is rather expected. If it had been me id have kicked the fucking shit outta the guy for saying that, and it wouldnt have stopped at one punch, it would have continued once the guy was floored.
If the allegations are true i think the whole thing should be made public and materazzi should be thrown out of the game in disgrace permanently.
I say this because FIFA make such a big effort (do they?) to stamp out racism in football and that is exactly what this is, with the added insult that he insulted someones ethnic background.
gg to the greatest footballer of his generation and may FIFA take steps to show they really mean buisness about racism and throw the italian out of football.
I personnaly hate it when someone is made a scapegoat to prove a point, but if FIFA needed an excuse to show they really do want the integrity of the game kept, then they need to take serious action over this.
I thought Portugal disgraced themselves in the semi-final with their antics, well that was game related, whereas this incident is so far beyond that scope and MUST be dealt with if its true.
btw, Ronaldo was the greatest before his knee gave in, even zeezoo couldnt live with him.
