Three-time FIFA World Player of the Year Zinedine Zidane scored 28 goals in 139 games for first club Bordeaux, then the same number for Juventus in 191 appearances.

However, he is best remembered for his role in the 2006 FIFA World Cup™. The playmaker led France to a showdown against Italy, scoring against Spain and Portugal on the way. After converting a penalty to give France the lead it looked like his career was set to end on a high - until he was sent off for a headbutt on Italian goalscorer Marco Materazzi.

Zidane also starred for France when they won the FIFA World Cup on home soil in 1998. The midfielder scoring twice with headers as Les Bleus defeated Brazil 3-0 in the Final.
