World Cup final: the France Italy live blogcast

And thus the Cup ended. France played a better game but the Catenachio prevailed and the psycho final settled matters over to Italy. When you reach that level you cannot let pettiness (the Trezeguet story) or temper take over.

4:49. On a perdu :(

I bet Zidane is crying his heart out in the locker room....

4:29. And we go to penalty rounds to settle matter, with Henry and Zidane out. This sucks big time.

4:19. And Zidane ends his career on a red card.

This temper tantrum cost him eternal futbol glory. Pele and Beckenbauer will remain alone in the pantheon. Fuck.....

4:15. End of the first prolongation. Henry out. Wiltrod in. The Italians are doign a demolition derby. Ribery also left, but Ribery cannot hold a full game, he overspends his energy.

Besides of the Italians palying dirty, it is a heck of final game. Antology material


3:40. Italians are really playing dirty. Now they dislocated Zidane shoulder. But he soldiers on.

3:31. Teams are nervous. But this is a hell of a game with two amazingly great teams.

3:17.
The Italians have managed to destroy Vieira.

3:12. The second half is on. Yours truly is slightly buzzed. So is the umpire that missed a penalty agaisnt Italy again.

I am buzzed because we just served the paella and someone brought a bottle of old Jerez: a few drops of it over the paella are a tremenduous improvement(and add dangerously to the Sauvignon Blanc (Anakena, Chile, 2005, a very pleasant dicovery)

2:22. Italy evened up with Materazzi. This is going to be a hell of a game!

Barthez gets one....

2:06. Gooooooolllllllll Zidane trumps Buffon on a penalty kick.

Buffon in a rare moment of impotence.

The Italians meant business and started early doing a Dutch move: knock out of the game you most dangerous opponent. Soon Henry was having ice all over his face and Zambrotta a yellow card. But the Italians overdid it, a fault near the goal and France got a revenge penalty. Difficult to imagine more tense start for a game.

1:47. Shakira is entertaining Berlin Olympic Stadion. She certainly is the artist for the occasion.

1:34. Well, I was not really planning to do a broadcast today, but since I did it for the last three games of France and France won each time, I figured out that it could not hurt. The reason is that this time I am in Caracas and we have gathered a few French supporters to cheer our team (and drink and eat). The living room of the house has been transformed in some sort of mini movie hall, beer and white wine abundantly in the refrigerator, assorted finger foods and paella. Well, it is easier that way, self service buffet, no one needs to sacrifice the game to serve food.

Thus coverage will be erratic, but occasional. Though after 4 glasses of wine spelling and style will be worse than usual :)

Paris est une fêteFirenze e bella

It's sad that Zidane went out the way he did, and that his moment of infamy will mark this World Cup as well as his career.
