I totally agree. That was the worst foul I have EVER seen.
The worst part (and he's going to have to come to grips with it) is that his presence might have made a difference in the outcome of the penalty kicks that ended the game. France missed one (Italy did NOT block it, France just missed it). Things might have been different if he hadn't acted like a child and gotten the red card.
