Zidane was easy one of the greatest ever players to come out of france and the most outstanding player of his generation

 Zidane led France to World Cup glory in 1998 and to the European Championship in 2000. As we all know he was a superb passer of the ball first and foremost, an outstanding playmaker that fed his forwards with great passes.

But Zidane could produce goals himself as well, most notably the winning goals in the 1998 World Cup Final and the 2002 Champion’s League Final. Zidane was named European Footballer of the Year in 1998, and FIFA World Footballer of the Year in 1998, 2000, and 2003.

Many experts have testified to Zidane’s skills and impact as an all-time great, such as Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira who has labelled Zidane “a monster” for his performance and playing skills.

French footballer Michel Platini states Zidane is one of the most skillful players the game has ever known: “Technically, I think he is the king of what’s fundamental in the game – control and passing. I don’t think anyone can match him when it comes to controlling or receiving the ball.”

Following his red card in the final of 2006 after a great world cup , Zidane retired from professional football, and confirmed that he would not go back on his decision.

The explanation of va-va-voom is: “The quality of being exciting, vigorous, or attractive”. and Zidanes football fits the word just right
