Robin and Zidane!

Hey folks

Here's a photo taken in Leipzig, Germany of Robin next to a huge picture of Zinedine Zidane, the French football captain who will be playing his last ever football match in the World Cup final tomorrow, before retiring. He's a wonderful player and, seemingly, a lovely man (when he swapped shirts with his ex-Real Madrid colleague Luis Figo after Portugal v France the other day, you could see the care that Zidane was taking to make sure his shirt wasn't inside out when he removed it handed it to Figo!). Me and Robin would like wish Zidane and the French boys all the best in the final tomorrow. Or, as the French fans put it, Allez les Bleus!

I'm still in shock over how he lost his head last night...I was so looking forward to him going out in a blaze of glory.
So Italy will be the defending champions when the world joins us here in South Africa.

Good to hear from South Africa. There was interesting conversation on BBC Radion 5 today lunchtime re technology in Footie as in Rugby and Cricket. Guy who heads up SA Footie was on and pretty non-committal. Felt sorry for French who had been better team throughout 90 mins. Sarah, Derby

Ja, there has been a lot of debate on that, I think it should be used in key desicions but "true" fans think it will ruin the game.
