Goodbye Zidane !

This world cup again saw the legend in one of his best forms !

After coming out from hibernition (read:retirement), Zinedine Zidane led France by example in every match. An ardent Brazil I still am, it was Zidane's tactics against them which led France to the finals. I have to say no one can handle the ball as good as him. Everytime I see him playing, it looks like the ball clings on to his feet whenever it's near the France captain.

The Grand Finals saw another side of him...I wouldn't say sad but it definitely was heart breaking to see him walking off unwrapping his bandage just before 10 mins of Italy kissing the world cup. He also joins Pele and others scoring three goals in world cup finals. The Golden Ball award had to come his way in this magnificient career of him.

I feel inspite of everything, he deserves a gallant farewell, such a great player he is !
