Football Challenge Meme | A Football Hero
Zinedine Zidane once said about his first goal in the final match of the 1998 World Cup as “a powerful, even transcendental, sign of possibility”. Zinedine Zidane himself was a symbol of possibility, a flicker of hope - the man who bought an entire nation together. In football terms, the magical creator of chances. All that was impossible became possible with Zidane. On the pitch, his football was effortless, a certain quiet elegance and grace that only he possessed. Off the pitch, he was no different, intensely private and inherently shy; he was a dedicated family man. The fact that he was so ‘unknowable’ was part of the charm. He was an enigma. What makes him transcendental – immortal even – was how he projected the idea of the football dream, living proof that anything can be possible through sport.
