France 3, Spain 1 = ARRRRRGGGHH!!!

HANOVER, Germany (AP) -- Zinedine Zidane's farewell tour with France keeps on rolling. Spain's World Cup agony never ends.

Zidane sent in a late free kick that Patrick Vieira headed off a defender to break a 1-1 tie Tuesday, then the retiring French captain finished off a brilliant night with a goal of his own to cement France's place in the quarterfinals with a 3-1 victory.

France faces Brazil on Saturday, a rematch of the World Cup final in 1998, when the French won 3-0 on two Zidane goals.

Alright Brasil, let's not choke this time.
