Answer: The Reign of Terror, The Maginot Line, Zinedine Zidane.

Question: What are three of France’s biggest blunders?

In case you missed this weekend’s World Cup “action” here is France’s Zinedine Zidane, voted this World Cup’s best player, headbutting some poor unsuspecting Italian in the chest and getting himself red carded (translation: ejected). Nevermind that the game was tied 1-1 in overtime and his ejection meant that he couldn’t participate in the penalty kick shootout to decide the winner, which France would go on to lose. Not surprising I suppose that the arrogance of a Frenchman spelled disaster for untold millions. Watch the video and then enjoy the interactive game.

    I’m proud to say I watched this.

    I also have to say being more French than anything else. I’m sure he deserved it, I mean getting headbutted.

    Too bad about the TV cameras and world watching and all. Oh..and the fact that he’ll have to explain this for the rest of his life.
