You have to admit without that headbutt Zidane won't be as famous as he is now. This will go down as one of the most "WTF moments" in World Cup history.
no, frankly, I don't. he scored 3 goals and won the golden ball. the headbutt is just an aside.
no, it's not. it's the only thing that will make this World Cup barely well known in the history of World Cups
Zidane is already famous in the football world. This just made him famous among people who saw only the World Cup final or don't watch much soccer and saw the play.

Also, the fact that this World Cup went to PKs, and that Italy won despite the scandals back home, are also memorable things about this world cup. There has only been 18 of them.

what does the bolded part have to do with my post? I'm saying that the headbutt will be remembered, also it's not what will define Zidane's career. It's what will be what defines this world cup. Why? 20 years from now, I'm sure most people will just think to themselves, "Hey remember that World Cup 20 years ago? You mean the one where Zidane headbutted that Italian? Yeah, that was awesome"

You really think that this World Cup was memorable because Italy won despite scandals at home?

Umm, there was an audience of >1 Billion, so your statement is complete bollocks.

There was an audience of >1 billion simply because it was a World Cup. What he's saying is that there was nothing in this World Cup to make it stand out from other world cups, besides the headbutt.

Ok, what made the 1986 World Cup so memorable? The great games? The riots in the streets? Or the Hand of God? :p

Face it, 2006 is the Year of the Headbutt - and I will be greatly disappointed if it's not incorporated into the next FIFA video game. :D

With all the videogame reference you'd think someone would make one with Bonk from the TurboGfx 16.
