    You know why France had such a hard route to the final? Because they finished 2nd in their group.

    Zidane's contribution in the first two groupstage games was two yellow cards, no goals and no assists. He was suspended for the final game against Togo, which was a must-win for France, and they won it without Zidane.

    Maybe if Zidane played better in the groupstage, France would have had an easier route to the final.

    Zidane did have a good game against Brazil, now let me ask you: should Zidane's game against Brazil outweigh Pirlo being MOTM in both the semi-final and the final?

    Oh boy, that's leaning close to trolling. Pirlo was important for Italy, but consider this, Zidane's impact in the knock outs were out of this world especially against Brazil. Without Zidane France wouldn't have made it to the final and he was more instrumental to his team (litterally ran the show) than Pirlo for Italy (Stand out for them regardless).

    Zidane did have the better world cup, but honestly, I thought Cannavaro was the best player that tournament.

    No other player did what Zidane did in 2006 for his national team. He took the team on his shoulders, he had to compensate for an idiot in charge and he put in a performance with individual brilliance. The only thing missing was the title but they lost to penalties, so it was THAT close and down to chance in the end.

    Change of mind ?

    As great as Zidane was, I reckon Cannavaro topped everyone that WC.

    Cannavaro looked out of this world. I’m also glad a defender finally got some recognition.

    Canna was absolutely flawless that tournament. And the whole 2005-06 season at that.

    The most important player who joined us in the Marotta era. Turned everyone else around him into winners. Legend.
