Italy 1 d France 1 (penalties 5-3)

I was having trouble getting Marcus to bed last night so I promised I would wake him before the end of the World Cup Final this morning. I made him promise to go back to bed after it was over.

I duly woke him to see the last 10 minutes, plus extra time, plus penalties. He then refused to go back to bed, and argued loudly, waking up the rest of the family. So, although I generally enjoyed the final, I think that little difficulty plus Zidane headbutting Materazzi spoiled it for me.

I did enjoy this though - at one stage Marcus said "I wish I was playing in this game - then I would be a bit more famous than I am now".
