If you ask me, the infamous headbutt in the World Cup finale was the highlight (or lowlight) of the tournament. First of all, I'm American, so soccer puts me right to sleep. Secondly, the incident was the height of melodrama. What's not to like about that? In this video, it looks like the Italian player tweaked the French guy's nipple before getting the smackdown.
The French media is also reporting that Marco Materazzi called Zinedine Zidane a "dirty terrorist" prior to the Frenchman's red card in Sunday's World Cup final, while Materazzi has denied the accusation. I like the tweaked nipple theory better. Watch and judge for yourself.
