Zinedine Zidane (born June 23, 1972 in Marseille, France), popularly nicknamed Zizou, is a French Football player of Kabyle Algerian descent who has starred for both the French national team and for four club teams, most recently Real Madrid. Zidane is often considered to be the best footballer of his generation and one of the greatest of all time. A midfielder, his elegant dribbling, balance, passing ability, shot accuracy, shot selection and well placed free kicks have made him one of the game's finest artists.
I am going for France tonight, they are the underdogs, but with this man's talent they may have a enough to see off the Italians.
Edit Note : What a sad way to end the career of a great player. It would be nice to hear his side of the story.
