If France would have won then I would have agreed but 2nd place is still only 2nd place and Zidanes actions could have been the difference between winning and losing the WC.
He lost his head and may have lost his team the game in the only match that really counts. His performance in the big important game meant there is no way he should have won it.
Maybe next time they will not give the trophy out at 1/2 time
