Forza Italia!

I'll be rooting for the Italian side in this Sunday's World Cup final.

I love listening to the play call on Fabio Grasso's goal (for the Italians against Germany in the semi-final). The Italians have won the World Cup in 1934, 1938, and 1982. I remember the 1982 win, and the goal getter for the Azzurri that year: Paolo Rossi.

Their opponents are the esteemed French, who won the World Cup for the first time in 1998. They are led by the nimble Zinedine Zidane. When his game is on, he's the picture of perfect ball control.

Forza Italia!

  1. Very choppy match, but exciting nonetheless. Everyone will be talking about Zidane's headbutt on Materazzi, but I will be remembering Fabio Grosso, who shrugged off Italy's memories of past penalty kick failures, and knocked in the Cup winner with his left foot. Bellissimo!
