The Final was between Italy and France, Italy have done well in their groups, France just managed to escape a 2002 repeat, this was at the Olympic Stadium. The match kicked of and the score was 1-1 with Zidane scoring a penalty and Materazzi scoring the next, then extra time came and Zidane headbutts Materazzi and gets a red, dosen't matter really since Zidane retired, then had to work 3 days at FIFA, unlucky Zidane.
Back to the game and it came down to Penalties, Italy lost 3 penalty shootouts and France have won 2 and lost 1, the score was 5-3 to Italy. so now Italy have won 1 penalty shootouts and France have lost 2 penalty shootouts.
