Yup,it finally is taking place as Fifa ‘tries’ to stamp out unruly behaviours from the beautiful game.

FIFA has launched disciplinary proceedings against Italy‘s World Cup-winning defender Marco Materazzi.

Zidane told French TV on Wednesday that Materazzi had provoked him by continually insulting his mother and his sister.

The French player, who has now retired, is already under investigation by FIFA and its chief Sepp Blatter hinted that Zidane could be stripped of the tournament’s best player award.
