The Zinedine Zidane headbutt on Italy’s Marco Materazzi is undoubtedly the most controversial exit the sport has ever seen. Zidane was giving little away in the days that followed, only offering that the insult was ‘very personal’ and concerned his mother and sister. Zidane claimed in 2010 that he "would rather die" than apologize to Matterazzi.

In 2006 it was estimated that 715.1 million people watched the final match held in Germany. Football is not a sport only for the rich or only for the poor. The great thing about this sport is that everyone is involved and from all over the world people come together to support their team.
