World Cup Update

France 1 Portugal 0

Zinedine Zidane, playing perhaps his best football since France won the Cup, scored on a penalty kick in the 33rd minute after Thierry Henry was fouled in the box. France managed only five shots all game, and only had the ball 40% of the time, but scratched out the win.

So the Finals on Sunday shape up to be France v. Italy, which ought to be a high-flying, high-speed game, and fun to watch.
