Five Images to take away from World Cup 2006

The WC 2006 was amazing. The best team in the tournament didn't win, the most-creative team in the tournament didn't win, the most hyped-about team in the tournament didn't win. The MOST CONSISTENT and TACTICALLY BRILLIANT team WON. A job well done Squadra Azura!

There were some memorable images which will always be etched in mind. Here's the top among them:

  • Zidane hedbutting Marco Materrazzi
  • Fabio Grosso's celebrations after scoring against Germany in extra-time.
  • Brazil's Robinho running and hugging Zidane after France beating Brazil. You could almost lip-read Robinho, "You were brilliant!" he seemed to say.
  • David Beckham's emotional departure after an ankle injury in the England-Portugal match.
  • Fabio Cannavaro holding aloft the World Cup after Italy beat France. It was retribution for Euro 2000 when France managed to escape with a late goal and a golden goal.
