Zidane's red card
August 3rd 2006 03:31
Argentine referee Horatio Elizondo, the man who showed France legend Zinedine Zidane the red-card in the final of the World Cup 2006 has handed over the item of World Cup memorabilia after a one hour meeting with Argentina President Nestor Kirchner.
Kirchner was delighted with the gift and playfully brandished the tool of Zidane's downfall, autographed by Elizondo, in the direction of cameramen as if he was booking them.
Who would've thought Elizondo would give away the red-card - it would've been an awesome "show-and-tell" item for his grandchildren!
