Amazing Goal at Charity Soccer Game Proves Zinedine Zidane Still Has It (Video)

To people who only casually follow soccer, Zinedine Zidane is almost certainly best-known as “that guy who headbutted that other guy in the Final of the 2006 World Cup.” However, to serious soccer fans, the Algerian-born Frenchman is known as arguably the best player of his generation and the guy who led France to their first and only World Cup victory in 1998.

These days, the 40-year-old Zizou is retired from competitive soccer. But he recently took part in a charity soccer game featuring Zidane and Friends vs. Ronaldo and Friends (it was a game for which Ronaldo trained quite extensively).  And in that charity game (which Ronaldo & Friends won 3-2), Zidane showed that age has not yet eroded his natural talent by scoring an absolutely stunning volley goal.

I don’t really need to say too much to set this baby up. However, I will mention that it came off a give-and-go with teammate Loco Abreu, just so you know whose lovely pass Zizou converted into magic.

Check it out:

Obviously, the goalkeeper was not expecting a perfect strike off that lob pass. But I bet he learned his lesson.
