What a letdown

The France-Portugal match was such a disappointment. Both teams seemed to be playing without any plan or coordination. Zidane was invisible in the second half and only Ronaldo had some exciting moves in the match. The defending was sloppy and compared to Cannavaro's performance in the previous match it resembled a bunch of schoolboys playing defense. Maybe FIFA should nullify the match and make Italy and Germany play in the final.

Too many key players had yellow cards and the referee had been quite free with the cards in the previous game. So they were playing safe... or at least France was after the first goal. If France and Zizou play like they did against Brazil, Italians don’t have a chance.

I would like to see magnificent Zizou and his black-white-brown team take the cup home and show a cheeky finger to Le Pen and his cronies.

Go France!!!

I think Riberi might be the surprise element in the final. If Zizou is shut down then he's the only one who can conjure up some magic for the French.

I can't believe France lost. Italy must be the most undeserving winners. It was embarassing to watch the second half of the game played entirely in the Italian area. Zidane capped off his interrnational career with a great headbutt.
