Horacio Elizondo on sending off Zinédine Zidane

Back in April, I was lucky enough to interview Horacio Elizondo, the Argentine referee who sent off Zinédine Zidane during the 2006 World Cup final, following Zidane’s headbutt on Marco Materazzi. That interview is going to be published in issue eleven of The Blizzard, and on Wednesday, they released a short excerpt from it as a sneak preview of the issue. In this excerpt, Elizondo tells me how it feels to send off a player on a big stage, and reveals how much of a role the fourth official really played in one of the most controversial red cards in World Cup history. You can read it here.
