Notes - Home shirt as worn when despite the odds Marcello Lippi led Italy's ageing golden generation to a fourth World Cup. Italy faced a French side in the final that had conceded just one goal from open play all tournament. After 90 minutes the score was 1-1 and the two goal scorers were involved in what would go down as one of the most controversial World Cup moments in history. Following an exchange of words Zidane famously headbutted Marco Materazzi and was sent off down the tunnel past the trophy. The final went to penalties for only the second time in history. Both sides scored their opening kicks, Materazzi slotted his strike past Fabian Barthez to a chorus of French boos. David Trezeguet then stepped up to plate, the striker rattled the bar and the Italians were ahead. It was now in their hands, score their remaining three and the trophy was theirs. A net-buster from Daniele De Rossi, and two calm and collected finishes from Del Piero and Grosso claimed the trophy for the Italians. Never write off the Italians
