Deccan Herald > World Cup

After a gap of 24 years...
Italy win World Cup on penalties
It was Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro, exemplary again in his 100th international, who lifted the trophy to add to the Azzurri's successes of 1934, 1938 and 1982. They have become the second most successful team in the Cup history after Brazil, who have won it five times.

Grosso steals the show  yet again
It was the third time in four matches that he found himself as the hero of the hour but he was reluctant to take much credit. The 28-year-old left back, who was playing fourth division football only five years ago, has rarely been out of the spotlight
Zizou's farewell party ends in tears
The ageing maestro walked off the pitch of the Olympiastadion in tears, passing the World Cup trophy itself as he went down the stairs leading to the dressing rooms after losing   his cool at the worst possible moment.
Head butt against the rules?
Zidane leaves his mark on the World Cup final

I can understand Zidane losing cool: Domenech
The departure of their talisman and playmaker cost the French dearly as they lost momentum and their best penalty-taker. They lost the shootout 5-3, giving Italy their fourth title.
French fans praise Zidane despite red card
President Jacques Chirac downwards, the talismanic playmaker known as 'Zizou' remained a footballing icon despite finishing his career in disgrace.
My most satisfying moment, says Lippi
''I have to say thanks to the players,'' said Lippi. ''This is the most satisfying moment of my life. We are very happy. ''I dedicate the victory to my family.
France soccer players console each other during the penalty shootout against Italy in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Sunday, July 9,. From left to right: Claude Makelele, Jean-Alain Boumsong, David Trezguet, and Thierry Henry (12). 
All part of game, says Trezeguet
Striker David Trezeguet, whose penalty shootout miss cost France the chance to win their second World Cup, shrugged off his misfortune afterwards and said penalties were part of the game.
Ribery, Grosso make big World Cup breakthroughs
In a World Cup that was so low on goals, it seemed fitting that it was a defender who made the biggest impact of any previously unknown player.
Germany makes mark with fun as well
Germans in paper garlands of black, red and gold, Mexicans sporting sombreros, Brazilians in bikinis, Swiss fans jingling cow bells -- millions gathered at Fan Fests ...

A message reading "we love you Zizou [French football star Zinedine Zidane]" is projected on the Arc of Triumph on the Champs Elysee avenue in Paris after the World Cup 2006 final football match between Italy and France, at Berlin Olympic stadium in Germany. Italy won 5-3 on penalties after the final had finished tied 1-1 after extra-time.

Germany emerges a winner
British Prime Minister Tony Blair said the month-long soccer tournament had ''exceeded all expectations'' and had helped to correct the stereotypes some people have of Germany and Germans.
TV evidence should be used for everyone: Henry
''When a game goes to penalties you have to accept it. It's the way things are sometimes. But it is not good when things are decided that way..."

Frenzied celebrations in Italy
Italians launched into frenzied celebrations the moment their national soccer team won the World Cup final tonight to give the country something to cheer about after a run of scandals.
Italian politicians laud Cup winners
The country's president Giorgio Napolitano thanked the players for restoring a sense of national pride.
Of phony grimaces and feigned injuries
Italians will long celebrate this success and its players will be accorded hero status for the rest of their lives. The rest of the world will be forgiven for taking rather a different view of things.

Klinsmann keeps Germany guessing
'It's just crazy. But give me a few days to decide. We all need a bit of time,'' he added.

Dramatic cup marred by on-the-pitch action
The World Cup was almost flawlessly organised, attracted great crowds and inspired a carnival atmosphere which turned Germany into one big party zone.
