Johan Micoud



Johan Micoud
Micoud gave a massive boost to his Euro 2000 chances with an excellent performance against Scotland, standing in for injured superstar Zidane.

At last, said the critics in France, our team can play without its talisman.

A classy attacking midfielder sometimes compared to Eric Cantona, Micoud has been criticised for lacking consistency and not scoring enough goals.

But having made his international debut at the start of the season, he has moved ahead of more experienced campaigners like Christian Karembeu and possibly Christophe Dugarry.

Can feature on the left side of coach Lemerre's prefered 4-2-3-1 formation, or behind the front man in Zidane's traditional position if the Juve man is ruled out.
