Zidane x LA Galaxy 2005



There is no reason to post this other than it serves as an awesome reminder of the bad-assitude of Zinedine Zidane. In 2005, at the height of Galacticos Mania, Real Madrid came to the Home Depot Center to play an exhibition match against the Galaxy when David Beckham was just a twinkle in Tim Leiweke's eye. Zidane put on a show that, at the time, I was only impressed with. Looking back now though I'm completely blown away.

The video quality isn't the greatest, but Zizzou's skillful display damn near is. If you never saw this match or your memory is fuzzy watch the Zidane-only highlights above; the man was incredible.

Once you have seen what a great player can do with a soccer ball, nothing else compares.

Soccer in its current form with physically gifted midfielders more keen on destruction than creation, and forwards running at breakneck speeds on the border of chaos just make the game look rudimentary and unimaginative.

Was at that game. Easily the best performance of a player I have ever seen live. The man is a genius.
