    SOCCER *****ES! Zidane sh*t enclosed...

    [B]Judgment day for Zidane and Materazzi[/B]
    [SIZE=1]MASSIMO MARZOCCHI[/SIZE]


    ZINEDINE Zidane and Marco Materazzi face judgment day today with FIFA disciplinary chiefs set to decide on any punishments for the incident in the World Cup final which led to Zidane's sending-off.

    Zidane earned a red card in extra-time when the France playmaker, in his last professional match, butted Materazzi in the chest after some verbal provocation from the Italy defender.


    The incident happened when France appeared to be getting on top and Zidane's sending-off also deprived Les Bleus of their first-choice penalty taker in the shoot-out which was won 5-3 by the Azzurri.

    Former Everton defender Materazzi admits insulting the 34-year-old but denies the abuse was of a racist or religious nature and furthermore denies Zidane's claims that he made disparaging remarks about the Frenchman's family. Materazzi told Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper it was "one of those insults you hear dozens of times and that often slips out on the pitch".

    Zidane will fly to Zurich to defend himself with the support of French Football Federation president Jean-Pierre Escalettes and a lawyer.

    Since he has retired, any ban he gets for the head-butt will be academic while the maximum fine of 2,257 would not significantly dent his bank balance.

    For Materazzi, a lot will depend on the nature of the insults. If the committee accepts his version of events then he could escape any penalty or suffer a minor punishment. If, however, he is deemed guilty of racist abuse he could land a five-match ban and a fine of up to 4,514.

    Materazzi has already given evidence to the committee while Zidane will testify today.

    FIFA will announce any verdicts in a press release after the evidence has been considered.

    I don't like the fact that the Italian player is going to get banned or fined for what he said. I have said and heard everything on the rugby pitch. You don't head butt the guy you knock the piss out of him every chance you get and you win the ****ing match that is the best way to say **** you back.

    It isn't bad enough that I have to listen to you in the religious threads but now in the soccer threads? Smart ass.
