....of headbutting took place last night. France won!
Serioulsy though! What was ZiZou thinking! Zinedine Zidane's agent claims that the France captain was provoked into headbutting Marco Materazzi during the World Cup final by a "very serious" comment. The pair held a lengthy dialogue during the closing stages of Sunday's match before Zidane felled the Italian defender with an extraordinary head-butt. "He told me Materazzi said something very serious to him but he wouldn't tell me what," agent Alain Migliaccio told BBC Radio Five Live. "Zinedine didn't want to talk about it but he will talk about it in the next couple of days," he continued. "He is a man who normally lets things wash over him but on Sunday night something exploded inside him. "He was very disappointed and sad. He didn't want it to end this way."
Neither Materazzi nor Zidane have spoken publicly since the final. According to French newspaper L'Equipe, Materazzi goaded the Algerian-French Zidane by calling him "a terrorist". Other reports have claimed that the former Everton defender told the France captain - born in Marseille, but of Algerian heritage - "you should play for your own country".
