- The Guardian says: 'A red card rather than a greetings card ushered Zinedine Zidane into retirement 19 minutes into extra-time. The captain was sent off for reacting to a dispute with Marco Materazzi by turning and butting the scorer of Italy's goal in the chest. He had surely been provoked - there were suggestions last night that Materazzi had called him "a terrorist" - but Zidane will be right to curse his stupid reaction.'

Seems the Italian player called French muslim player Zidane "A Terrorist" during yesterday's world cup final game, and it provoked Zidane so much that he attacked the Italian guy. hmmmm, I think being PC doesn't mean much to European soccer players or may be people over there think he is a terrorist.
