Zinedine Zidane | Video

Imagine showing up to play a pick-up game of basketball at a local court and finding Kevin Garnett lacing up his boots. Well, that's a fair comparison to this video of the great French midfielder Zinedine Zidane playing five-a-side futsal in a gym.

In the clip, Zidane is the tall balding guy (just in case his unbelievable footwork doesn't give him away). Check out the moves and passes he makes across the front of the goal. Plus, I like the fact that he's sliding into the goal to knock one home in some cruddy gym.

Actually, Google Video is packed with videos of Zidane:

Here is one where he fakes out three defenders on the dribble to net a goal.

This one is the amazing goal he scored off the volley in the Champion's League Final for Real Madrid.

This one is an eight-minute highlights package of the man.

And while I'm on the subject of soccer videos, this is always a good one. Phil Babbs meet post. Post Meet Phil Babbs.
