    The 49-year-old was the unfortunate recipient of Zinedine Zidane’s infamous headbutt in the 2006 World Cup final, which Italy went on to win.

    But now 16 years on Materazzi has resumed his World Cup romance as he tours around with the trophy.

    Materazzi’s most recent trip saw him visiting Belgrade in Serbia, where he was seen in a £450 Burberry wool top.

    He enjoyed a trophy-laden career as he starred for both the Italian national team and Inter Milan.

    He won an unprecedented Treble under Jose Mourinho at Inter – winning 15 club trophies in all, including five Scudettos, the Champions League and the Club World Cup.

    He is also credited as one of the few to score a goal in a World Cup final after he headed in Italy’s equaliser minutes after Zidane opened the scoring.

    The World Cup trophy is journeying to each of the 32 qualifying nations ahead of the November kick off.

    The scorching hot temperatures in host nation Qatar means the tournament needed to be held at a cooler time of year, leading to the first-ever November start date.

    Last weekend the trophy was in Split, Croatia, while the tour itself will end in Doha, Qatar just a few days prior to the tournament.

    While the World Cup is entering the final stretch prior to the tournament starting, there has been massive revelations for Euro 2024.

    Russia was booted out of qualifying for the tournament following a Uefa announcement earlier today.

    And England must pull off Nation League wins against Italy and Germany or face a far tougher group in their qualifying campaign.
