3 .David Trezeguet (France) vs Italy
2006 World Cup Final
Italy won 5-3 on penalties (1-1 a.e.t.)
When it comes to the 2006 world cup final, everyone remembers Zindane’s infamous headbutt. However, when it was time for the shootout, David Trezeguet, one of France’s finest strikers and the scorer of the Golden Goal against Italy in the Euro 2000 final, was the only player to miss his penalty kick.
Taking the second kick for France, he ran, aiming for the top left corner of the goal and buffon dived the other way. However his shot hit the crossbar to bounce out. With no one missing any penalty later, that was the kick that really cost France the World Cup.
