Vive la headbutt!

I was a huge fan of Henry and Zidane before the World Cup, and my admiration for the French team hasn’t diminished one bit after the headbutt. People criticize his temper, and the way he deliberately fell from grace in his final game, but Zidane has claimed that Materazzi called him a ‘dirty terrorist’.

Now, if anything, people should be commending him for standing up to Materazzi and Islamophobia. He was willing to flush his reputation and legendary status down the toilet to stand up to racism.

I don’t agree however with FIFA’s choice of Zidane for the Golden Boot. He did headbutt someone after all, and this award was obviously meant as a consolation. The opportunity to win the Golden Boot comes once in four years, and they really should’ve given it to someone who deserved it over the entire tournament, which definitely was Cannavaro.

By the way, Blayde has put Zidane in the newest edition of Mortal Kombat. Funny stuff.
