Italy was the luckiest team in the tournament, france was the best team in the tournament. This is enough to make the french be proud of their team and the Italian consider that their football is based on penalties at the 95th minute and red cards for other teams. Italy should have been kicked out by australia. VIVE LA FRANCE!

THEY PLAY WITH CLASS

you're all pathetic, I'm half italian and I live in Rome. It's not a dream country, you would hate it if you would live here. So please don't comment that, I know what it means ... I've been living here for almost 20 years and I'm on the verge of running away from this country the nationalism, narrow-mindedness, racism and prejudices are amazing and the Italian Team can only be hated, they are models not players. So please, you don't know what it really is.

Zidance showed no respect to the italian team when he took his penalty kick....why not drive it into the net and do it with class. Why try to be cocky. You deserved the Red Card....Forza Azzurri per sempre

Rob didn't Totti do the same against my team, the Netherlands???? Respect!!!! It's just a damn penalty, and a damn good one too. Italy will never score a penalty like that. Super Zidane! Super France! VIVE LA FRANCE!

Vai a fare in culo would be more correct, you see you don't anything about this country??? Anyways I don't feel like quarelling, I know France deserved and that was for all the world to see, Italy was one of the top teams and they probably deserved the 4th round but not more than that, it showed how football is mostly luck. I'm fed up with quarelling with people who don't know anything, I've been living here for 20 years and I've been bombarded by my italian family with how italy is the best country in the world and everything else sucks every single day of my life, and the tv says the same. They say nasty things about the french, the english, the german, the swiss, the americans and obviously all arabs. Italians are very arrogant even if they are amusing, but terribly arrogant when it comes to national pride. Italy is a beautiful country to live in, it's the Italian mentality and Italians themselves which are terribly annoying. Live in Italy, instead of seeing Italy as any tourist would do, then I'll accept what you all say.

I like how the Italian pride is coming from Canada. Then again Canada has the highest population of Italians outside of Italy.

Jan, I lived in Italy for 14 years and in Canada for 15. Canadians suck just as much as Italians as they call us Ginos and make fun of our family oriented upbringing, while they kick out their young at 18 and then wonder why when they turn 70, none of their kids go and visit them at the old age home. Germans are just as bad as they wrote racist things in their Newspapers about italians when they lost in the semis. The French... don't get me started, ask any immigrant how well they are received by the snobby french people. No matter where you are in the World you will encounter ignorant people, so quit your whining and try to change your circle of friends, you are obviously hanging out with the wrong people.

by the way, forza Italia. It was about time our tam won. Everyone who disagrees, I only have one thing to say: shut your trap.

We deserve some time to enjoy our well deserved win, instead of having to answer to other people bitching and complaining.
