World Cup Final, II

So I didn’t have to prepare my “Only Zinedine Zidane can interrupt the inexorable logic of history” post, after all. But I did laugh when I noticed this morning that Le Monde‘s pre-match supplement had the headline “Zidane, la touche finale”, the words appearing just above where his forehead was in the picture.

UPDATE [5pm]: Make sure you read Daniel Davies’ tribute to Zizou’s headbutt over at Comment is Free.

    DD thinks that the felled Italian was a striker. Traditional Guardian standards of accuracy, then.

    Well, he scored more goals in the final than the real strikers, so perhaps the error’s excusable.
