I know that was not your point, but what I was saying was that in a perfect world, which is was the setting for your argument, the second goal would have not been called back and the Zidane incident would never have happened....

You are saying Zidane on the pitch would have led others to perceive a chance for France to win, well in a perfect world maybe he and Materazzi both would have been carded if the insults were that bad.... but then again, in a perfect world Italy would have been leading 2-1 and penalty kicks or that incident might have never happened....

That's the way I took what you said anyway....
