Football: THAT Hampden Goal Restored Me as One of the Greats .. Now I Want More of the Same SAYS ZINEDINE ZIDANE; ZIZOU SAYS BIG THANK-YOU .. RIVALDO ROW RUMBLES ON

But by lifting the Champions League he's got a golden set of World, European and Champions League medals.

Now still only 29, Zidane still has a number of years left to add to that impressive haul.
