Three time ballon d'or winner, Zinedine Zidane comfortably sits as the midfield's anchor and director. He is arguably one of the greatest 10 of all time. He deservedly won the World Cup, European Cup and the Champions league as a player. During his first phase as the Real Madrid head coach, he won the Champions League three times consecutively, a feat achieved only by him in football's history (and yet to be broken). Zidane scored two goals for France during a World Cup final match against Brazil in 1998. France won the match by a scoreline of 3-0.
