Frank Leboeuf and Julien Laurens join Dan Thomas on ESPN FC to mark the 18-year anniversary of Zinedine Zidane’s breathtaking volley to help Real Madrid win the 2002 Champions League final vs. Beyer Leverkusen at Hamden Park. Leboeuf and Lauren heap praise on the remarkable ability Zizou showed to connect with Roberto Carlos’ cross. The pair also assess where the Zidane ranks in the pantheon of great French players like Michel Platini and Raymond Kopa, and also against greatest-of-all-time contenders like Pele, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
