Zinedine Zidane gave the USA's top youngsters the thrill of a lifetime last week in Colorado. While Spanish press were asking where Zizou was for Cristiano Ronaldo's stellar Real Madrid signing ceremony, we can reveal the French legend was putting America's best kids through their paces.
On Tuesday, Zidane made a surprise visit to the 12th Annual adidas Elite Soccer Program (ESP) at the MLSColorado Rapids practice field in Denver, Colorado. This premier youth development program was attended by the top 102 youth players in the nation who were surprised by Zidane's arrival and then treated to the opportunity of a lifetime as they ran drills with him on the field.
