Zidane, a first blow that says a lot

More than 30 years ago, in February 1991, Zinédine Zidane scored his first professional goal and he had already hit hard.

The legendary career of Zinedine Zidane, the footballer, ended with a headbutt on Marco Materazzi, in the final of the 2006 World Cup in Berlin. The world of football will remember it for life. On the other hand, the very first goal of the attacking midfielder, a native of Marseille but trained inAS Canneshas been somewhat forgotten.

In a video posted on Twitter in recent days, “Zizou” recounts his first goal in French Division 1, with the Cannes team, on February 10, 1991, when FC Nantes came. The playmaker was only 17 years old and playing his first season at the top level (31 matches, 1 goal, 6 assists).

« I was very young and I had more hair (laughs). It’s quite special. Score your first goal in the first division when you’re 17, it scores, it’s so beautiful, you remember it all your life “Smiles first Zidane, who had displayed all his technique and all his talent on this goal.

“It’s not a raccro goal”

He tells: ” It’s a pass from (Franck) Durix who puts it in line with me, I take it back with the outside of my foot, I lift it a little so that it bounces back. David Marraud, the Nantes goalkeeper, is a little advanced and I manage to lob him. It’s a great memory, the first goal is still quite special. Somehow it’s a good goal, it’s not a rogue goal. We win 2-1, it’s only happiness ».

A year and a half later, in 1992, Zidane landed in the Girondins of Bordeaux, where he will become one of the best players in the French championship, while kicking off his career with the France team in August 1994 (with a resounding double against the Czech Republic). He will then join Juventus in 96 and the Real Madrid in 2001 to become one of the best in history, obviously winning the World Cup with the Blues in 98.
