The legend of “inter” Marco Materazzi told about the incident in the world Cup final in 2006, when he provoked Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane hit Materazzi with his head in the chest and was removed. In the end, Italy became the world champion.
“Zidane defended the French, and I was criticized by my own countrymen. For me they are not real Italians. I am a patriot, and I always defended the colors of Italy. Their critique — what hurt me the most after the world Cup. These people were supposed to worship the ground on which I walked, since I scored a goal,” said Materazzi.
