The next Midfield - 'Ribery?'

Zidane is for sure will left the national France jersey after WC2006. To know this, most of the fan will look up for the next midfield that have the same quality with the King Zizou. The tight game in semi final between Portugal and France, shows some hope for the France fan, when the secret weapon of France, Frank Ribery never stop to show quality skills, unpredictable action and cross which will support the front line to search for goals. He is sure can dribble, make a twist turn to decieve the defenders, cross a quality ball to striker and front man, he himself can score, he is every where in his position, and with a scar, he already be a new star. Both winger, Ribery and Sagnol, with the appearance of the King Midfield, Zinadene Zidane and Patrick Vierra, act as the centre to attack, never seem to put themselves in rest.
Meski keringat pasukan tua France, nampak tidak dapat menyaingi semangat perjuangan kebanyakkan pemain muda Portugal, tentunya C. Ronaldo dan Deco, formula bekerja berkumpulan berjaya menunjukkan hasilnya. Figo walaupun berhabis keringat menyerlahkan bakatnya ditengah, juga tidak berjaya memberi umpanan gol kepada barisan penyerang Portugal. Portugal mungkin hanya kekurangan 1, 'luck', walau mereka menguasai sebahagian besar masa perlawanan 90 minit yang menyaksikan gol kedua untuk kempen WC06 Zidane, dijaringkan melalui sepakan penalti di minit 33, kurang 1 dari usia sebenar Zidane. Ricardo dalam aksi cemerlang menjaga gawang sebelum ini, perlu formula yang lebih canggih untuk menafikan sepakan padu kapten Perancis itu. Kredit juga perlu diberikan dibahagian pertahanan, Thuram, Amida, Makele dan yang lain-lain. Juga, penjaga gol yang berpengalaman, Fabien Barthez.
It is too soon to predict Ribery to take the role of Zidane in national team, as he is more effective as a winger, but who know when he is really given the oppurtunity to act in Zidane shoes? However, the discovery of Ribery, the unknown quality before WC2006, shows some hope to the France team, and Les Blues will
remember as the strunggle team in the group game, with 0-0, 1-1, 2-0 results until they find their way to final in Berlin. The France has already win, Zidane too, to deny the critics, to win the fans heart and supports, to light the hope and to show the world what is actually a group game. This will be last for Zidane, and without ASTRO (has to depends on RTM, 'siaran berlesen piala dunia anda'), hopefully I can always see the charming eyes of Zidane looking at the kids which will holding his arm to bring him in the arena again, and the sincere smile, which will put million others to smile with him. He will be the most remembered quality in early millenium years in football, forever. It is too sad to realize the reality he will not wearing any football jersey anymore.
Italy, memang pasukan pilihan di akhir piala dunia. Dengan kebangkitan yang mengejutkan, dan corak permainan yang 'superb', menewaskan German di semi final, Italy perlu dipandang sebagai ancaman sebenar di WC06. Apa-apa pun, jawapannya di Berlin, jutaan akan menyaksikan, piala dunia sekali lagi akan dijulang. 'Good luck' untuk France, dan semoga 'Esprit de corps' akan dikenang selamanya.
