Your View - FIFA suspends Zidane, Materazzi
Soccer's world governing body has slapped retiring French midfielder Zinedine Zidane with a three-match ban for head-butting Italian defender Marco Materazzi in the World Cup final.
FIFA's disciplinary committee made the ruling July 20 and also banned Materazzi for two matches for his part in the incident, which occurred in extra time of Italy's 5-3 penalty shootout victory over France on July 9 in Berlin.
What do you think of the decision? Since Zidane has, in effect, retired, does his punishment matter? What about Materazzi's ban? Does it make Materazzi as responsible for the head-butt incident as Zidane?
