France, Italy a good World Cup final matchup

OK, so it's not Germany vs. Brazil, but the World Cup finals matchup of France against Italy should be a good one.

France, whom many thought was washed up, has come out of nowhere since their impressive defeat of Brazil in the quarterfinals. They have a lot of momentum and are playing like they want their veteran star, Zinedine Zidane, to finish his international career with another world title.

Italy has overcome distractions ranging from the match-fixing scandal back home to an apparent suicide attempt by Juventus' team manager. Italy has been playing top-notch soccer since the beginning of the tournament and will be more than up to the task against Les Bleus.

Even if you're not a fan of soccer, this game is worth watching (Sunday, 12:30 p.m. on ABC).
