Lippi savours greatest moment of his life
font size    

Italy coach Marcello Lippi said here on Sunday that winning the World Cup was the greatest moment of his life.

Italy upset France 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in fulltime to clinch the 2006 World Cup title and became the second team to win World Cup at least four times. Brazil have won five times.

An emotional Lippi said: "I have to say thanks to the players. This is the most satisfying moment of my life.

Italy are now unbeaten in their last 25 international matches and conceded only two goals in their seven matches in the World Cup.

"I dedicate the victory to my family. The players have unlimited heart, character and personality.

"Winning the World Cup is the greatest satisfaction that any coach or footballer can ever feel."

He added: "I've had the fortune to win the Champions League and lots of Serie A titles, but I've never felt anything like this."
