Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says "England have produced the two best midfielders of the past 20 years". Zizou is a big fan of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

"England have probably produced the two best midfield players of the last 20 years in Steven Gerrard and Paul Scholes," he said.

"There was a point when Gerrard was the best midfield player in the world. It is unusual to get complete midfield players who can do everything, but that is what he was.

"His legs are not going to be what they were five or six years ago - but his presence and leadership are invaluable for Liverpool."
