    • Fabio Grosso - Italy, 2006
      Despite his position on the backline, Grosso played a large role in Italy's goal-scoring efforts, earning the winning penalty in the round of 16 match against Australia and scoring in extra time in the semifinal against Germany. But none was as important as the final time Grosso found the back of the net: The left back scored the title-winning penalty kick in the shootout against France. After France striker David Trezeguet hit the crossbar, Grosso approached to attempt Italy's fifth kick. After he converted, he ran almost to the halfway mark before his teammates could catch him to celebrate.moreless
    • Marco Materazzi - Italy, 2006
      In this episode of "I Scored a Goal in the FIFA World Cup Final," Marco Materazzi tells the story of how his goal during the 2006 World Cup match kept Italy in the game and ultimately helped the country claim the win for the 18th edition of the FIFA World Cup. Though most know Materazzi as the player at the center of the controversial Zinedine Zidane headbutt in overtime, Marco was the Italian player who tied the game 1-1, allowing for the extra time when the clock ran out in the second half. Even though Materazzi gave up on the penalty caused by Zidane earlier in the match, his 19th-minute goal served as his a sort of redemption, and Italy ironically took the match 5-3 over France due to separate penalty kicks in overtime.moreless
    • Ronaldo - Brazil, 2002
      0.0
      Ronaldo won his record third FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2002, after scoring both goals in his country's 2-0 win over Germany. The victory gave Brazil a fifth World Cup title, four years after the national team -- and Ronaldo in particular -- had looked lackluster in losing to host France in the 1998 final. Ronaldo would again make Brazil's squad in 2006p, and his goal against Ghana in the round of 16 gave him a total of 15 over his career, the most in World Cup history.moreless
