Capped 108 times for Les Bleus, Zidane scored an impressive 31 goals in his 12-year international career.
Widely regarded as the greatest French player of all-time, Zinedine Zidane was also known for his fiery temper. The famous World Cup red-card for headbutting Marco Materazzi being the most prominent example of this.
Zinedine also was the focus of the documentary film “Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait” where 17 cameras focused on the Midfielder during Real Madrid’s game against Villarreal in 2005. During the final few minutes of the game, he was dismissed following a fight on the pitch. If you haven’t watched this movie, it is compelling viewing.
Zinedine Zidane truly deserves his place in Los Revolucionarios, and he enters under his nickname “Zizou”.
