I hear and read in previews to the final that this a clash between two proud, historic footballing nations! huh???
since when are France known as a good Footballing nation?
They fell over a world cup at home, and were very, very lucky in 3 knockout games at Euro2000!!
Italy outplayed France, but as Manchester United has shown in past European tournaments, sometimes it takes more ass than class to win them!
There are 4 heavyweight nations of world football history, being Italy, Germany, Brazil and Argentina. Nobody else!

Uruguay won WC 2x, too :)
but now, with one WC, 2 EC and especially the "Double", France seems to be close away from the level of the teams you mentioned

When France wins its second World Cup it can be included with the other countries that have won more than 1 World Cup (Brazil, Germany, Italy, Argentina and Uruguay). Winning only 1 World Cup like England and France isn't enough to include them with countries that have won 2 or more World Cups.

Smokin totally agree with you. Who the hell is France, they have only emerged in the last 4 years. They had to wait to be hosts in 98 to qualify for a World Cup, something they couldn't do since 1986 " 12 fu#king years LOL LOL ". Sometimes it happens that a nation goes on a good run for a few years and then goes flat for another few decades. I hope with France this is just that. Italy have always been dangerous contenders in major tournaments. AND THEY ALWAYS WILL!!! THE SUN WILL RISE AGAIN....WORLD CUP 2002
