Zidane kui tänavakakleja?

Tõenäoliselt on tänaseks kõik tuttavad Zidane'i toorete meetoditega jalgpalli MM'i finaalist, kuid Slate on küsinud ekspertidelt, millise hinnangu annaks nemad Zidane'i löögile:
How was Zidane's head-butting technique?

Impeccable. Experts in self-defense and mixed martial arts say Zidane's head butt was a flawless demonstration of the form. He positioned his feet close to his opponent and stepped into the blow, contracting his abdominal muscles to curve into the attack. He was also careful to keep his chin down as he approached, which helped him land the strike with the top of his head as opposed to his brow or face.

Zidane employed a classic "forward head butt," favored by street fighters in Europe and the United States. Also known as the "Liverpool kiss" or the "Glasgow kiss," the forward head butt is used most often on an adversary's face.
Artiklist selgub ka see, mida Materazzi oleks saanud teha kui tegu oleks olnud tõelise tänavavõitlusega.
