BERLIN (AP) - Italy is the 2006 World Cup champion. They beat France 5-to-3 in a shootout after playing to a 1-1 draw. Outplayed for an hour and into extra time, the Italians won it after French captain Zinedine Zidane (ZIHN'-eh-deen zih-DAHN') was ejected in the 110th minute for a vicious head butt to the chest of Marco Materazzi. It was the ugliest act of a tournament that set records for yellow and red cards, diving and, at times, outright brutality. And it was the last move for Zidane, who is retiring. Without their leader for the shootout, the French only missed once. But Italy, rarely strong in such situations, made all five. Fabio Grosso clinched the Azzurri's (ah-ZHUR'-ees) fourth championship, and his teammates had to chase him halfway across the pitch to celebrate.
