Zidane uses his head

Funnily enough, if anyone still has Saturday's Irish Times sports section, Tom Humphries' article on Zidane details an incident from his - Zizou's - youth where he was being watched by a scout. Initially the scout thought he wasn't tough enough, seeing him hacked down by another player and just carrying on with the game - no reaction.

But then, a few minutes later, out of the seeming blue, he sees Zidane grab his assailant by the shoulders and headbutt him.

So it was always coming.

Zidane is a genius and an innovator. I mean, who else could come up with such a powerful headbutt at such a crucial point in a crucial game?

I have the video on my page. A thing of beauty!
