Zinedine Zidane
Club:Real Madrid
Position:Midfielder

Twice World Footballer of the Year, Zinedine Zidane burst onto the international scene with two goals on his France debut in 1994.

It was the beginning of a remarkable success story for the Frenchman of Algerian origin.

He wowed spectators at France 1998 with his faultless ability on the ball and pin-point distribution to his team-mates.

His two headed goals in the final also killed off world champions Brazil to hand France their first World Cup.

Two years later he followed that up by guiding his country to Euro 2000 glory.

Here he demonstrated his steely composure with a Golden Goal from the penalty spot against Portugal in the semis.

Last summer Real Madrid splashed out a world-record transfer fee of 45m for Zidane, who will most likely be one of the stars of the show again at this year's World Cup.
