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.
