Commentary on Zidane's gesture by Dany Laferrière

I've seen it all ... Zidane cracked plan and simple. Recall the anger he showed on the field when Buffon somehow miraculously blocked Zidane's "winning" header. That was a great hard cross and beautiful hard header. How the Italian goaly got a hand on it is a testament to his skill and some luck. The perfect Zidane hero ending was swatted up and over the net and stolen by Buffon. I believe Zidane knew he wouldn't get a 2nd chance and his anger exploded when Materazzi trash talked him. The pro collapsed...lost his composure and in many ways the match as the French team deflated with him. IMHO
