Zinedine Zidane would go on to become one of the legends of world football in a glorious career for club and country.

Many in France wouldn't have been surprised by that statement in 1994 after seeing the young midfielder make his debut for Les Bleus.

Coming off the bench with France trailing 2-0 to France, Zindane skipped passed several players before unleashing a 25-yard shot to get them back in the game.

He then headed home to salvage a draw. A fitting arrival for France's greatest ever player.
