yes, anytime zidane played against brazil, they dysfunctioned. maybe there is a link ?
and by the way, watch again the curse of the french squad in 2006. even the draw against the swiss, zidane shined. against the spanish, iniesta, xavi and co. against portugal, figo, cronaldo and co, and against italy... to dear a panenka in final against buffon, mah !
this man is a legend. that is.
No there isn't a link. Every time Thuram played against Brazil they were also dysfunctional, is there a link?
Zidane was MotM once in World Cup 2006, and that was the game against Brazil.
Makelele was MotM against Swiss. Park Ji-Sung was MotM in France vs S. Korea. The one game that France won in that group, the victory they needed to qualify, Vieira was MotM. Zidane didn't even play.
And you can't just make up facts dude. Iniesta didn't even play against Zidane in 2006. Xavi came back from a 4-month long injury. Didn't even start in the UCL final. So let's not pretend like France played against some uber-version of Xavi. In any case, Vieira was MotM of that game. Thuram was MotM against Portugal, although I think a case could've been made for him to have been the MotM.
Contrast this with his form in EURO 2000 where he played the full 180 minutes in both of their victories in group stage, then won MotM in both the quarter-final and semi-final. That was a much more impressive tournament. even if he didn't play particularly well in the final.
Yes, the man is a legend. I don't see any arguing otherwise
