In the 110th minute, Zidane head butted Materazzi after the Italian taunted Zidane, who was shown the red card and sent off. The match went to PKs, and in the end Italy converted all five PK shootout attempts to earn the 5-3 PK shootout victory and claim Italy's fourth World Cup title. fyi- Zidane wins the Golden Boot for best player, but he should also get a Golden Ass award for being a DUMMY. -match detail

First Round - Group Play in final round of matches

Yellow cards and the overall quality of refereeing is the most concern during the opening round of FIFA World Cup 2006. An average of over five yellow cards per match really adds up, combined with erratic refs. Still, the quality team usually finds a way to get the result.

The teams are finished with their final cycle of games in group play. The US stunk. Period. It was known it was going to be a difficult group, but the surprise knockout of the group isn't the US, its the Czech Republic, lost lost two matches. Ghana get the pass to the Round of 16 and will likely get to play Brazil in the next round.

Each team is guaranteed three games in group play. The top two teams in each group will advance to the Round of Sixteen, the knockout stage on the road to the 2006 World Cup Champion, crowned on 9 July in Berlin.

All matches of the 2006 World Cup will be televised in HD by ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 in the US. Also, the Univision family of stations will have the matches of Copa del Mundo en español.
