Yep, interesting debate, and it actually was discussed longer here than on the French football board I post on.

As for the PK finish, I don't mind that much when it's to decide a quarter-final or a semi-final, but that's just not a proper way to decide a World Champion.

And, for Nittany, it's not a North American complaining here.

Or maybe it's just that I'm too used to losing on PK with my teams (FC Nantes, Ajax Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Italy) that I can't really understand how it's possible to win sometimes.

But, I sure didn't enjoy this win as much as the Italian semi-final, or the beauty Bergkamp scored in 1/4 against Argentina at the last minute of the regulation time in 1998.
