Class is permanent.
A collection of the greatest players of the latest two decades got together on Wednesday night in Brazil for a star-studded exhibition match between Ronaldo & Friends vs Zidane & Friends, and the bald-headed Algerian-born, French World Cup winner showed that at 40-years-young he still has the talent to wow the crowd.
Zidane’s evergreen talents were evident early on as the Gallic genius came within a lick of paint of opening the scoring as he curler a beauty onto the inside of the post.
In the second half of the match Zidane got on the scoresheet.
After playing a 1-2 with Loco Abreu on the edge of the box, Zidane showed that his technique is still polished as he volleyed a left-footed shot into the near post.
A video of Zidane’s goal can be seen below, while a GIF is available below the fold.
