A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

France 1, Portugal 0

Zidane wins the battle of wills with Portugal keeper and quarter-final hero Ricardo, coolly tucking his spot-kick away 

France booked a World Cup final spot against Italy after Zinedine Zidane’s first-half penalty earned victory over a disappointing Portugal in Munich.

Zidane struck coolly past Ricardo on 33 minutes after Thierry Henry was tripped inside the box by Ricardo Carvalho.

Henry saw another shot trickle wide and Franck Ribery forced Ricardo to save.

Luis Figo and Deco saw shots saved by Fabien Barthez and Figo nodded over late on, but France stayed in control and thoroughly deserved their win.

Raymond Domenech’s side will now play Italy in the final in Berlin on Sunday at 1900 BST.
