Italy Beats France For World Cup

Italy beat France Sunday, claiming its fourth World Cup.

The game ended tied 1-1 and was decided on penalty kicks, with the Italians hitting all five shots. The French team only hit three.

The captain of France's team, Zinedine Zidane, was given a red card near the end of regular play and kicked out of the game for smashing his head into an opposing player's chest.

The soccer match was held in Berlin, Germany. This is a sweet win for Italy, which lost the 1994 World Cup final in a shootout. Italy lost that match to Brazil, which is the only country with more World Cup titles than Italy. Brazil has five.
