The tale of two playmakers......
.......................................................................................

Today we might get to see the repeat of the euro 2000 semifinal. France vs portugal, and most essentially zidane vs figo. Many had written off both zidane and figo for this world cup stating they were old and a spent force. At the beginning, Zidane had said, "We're not old, we're experienced." , and now both these players have contributed to their teams reaching the semis of the world cup in no lesser way. These are the two players i have really admired and followed ever since the 1998 world cup. Each of them have achieved so much and essentially gained millions of fans who adore their artistry on the field. All good things should come to an end, but no good things have left me so satisfied. This post is a tribute to both of them, hopefully one of them will get to lift the cup :).

As Luize Felipe Scollari, the curent portugal and ex- Brazil coach said today, "
Zidane and Figo should carry on for 15 more years because they can make the ball do wonderful things and even their opponents like to watch them play. "

"Zizou is like a musical conductor on the field, we play around him" ...Fabien Barthez, French goalkeeper.

"That was just typical Zidane; it didn't impress me any more than that. The only difference was this time I was next to him on the pitch. And I can assure you he does everything a lot quicker in real life than on TV" ...Franck ribery after Zidane led France to script Brazil's exit in the quarterfinals.
