One of his most iconic moments while at Real Madrid involved a spectacular volley - which was technically his first touch.
An attack down the left saw Roberto Carlos send in a lofted ball for Zidane on the edge of the area.
The 'Los Blancos' talisman swiveled his body shape and left fly with a stunning left-footed volley that rippled into the net.
