The World Cup's Most Iconic Photos

The most memorable images in World Cup history.

Butson described this image as a perfect illustration of Zinedine Zidane's fall from grace while in search of his second World Cup victory for France. In a play that will forever be a part of World Cup lore, Zidane headbutted Italy's Marco Materazzi in the chest. After some talk between referees, Zidane was shown the red card, the first ejection of a player in extra time during a World Cup final. Photographer Martin Rose captured the moment that Zidane, head down, walked past the World Cup trophy in the final game of his career. Italy won the game.
