We see great volleys and 30 yard screamers on a regular basis these days, but, with the exception of the truly great ones, they fade from the memory with ease. Time will tell if we're still talking about Peter Crouch's stunning volley in the months and years to come, but there's one volley that every football fan can remember. Zidane's volley in the Champions League final for Real Madrid against Bayer Leverkusen. It's one of those "Where were you when...?" moments. Go on, close your eyes. I bet you can picture the goal with the utmost ease. It's ingrained on your brain. Do you want to see it again? I've just had to watch it myself. Six times. Seeing as you've asked so nicely, here. Don't say we don't treat you people well.
I'll surrender the narrative now and hand it over to Simon Buckland, freelance journalist. His opening sentence is truly apt: "Some football memories cannot be beaten." Isn't that what it's all about?
