France: Euro2004

The First 11
Fabian Barthez Claimed to be the weakest link in the team at the moment. Proved the critics wrong after saving Beckham's penalty.
William Gallas Never fancied him actually b4 the England match. Potential of launching an organized attack from the right.
Lillian Thuram Used to be one of the best defenders in the world, maybe he still is. Will not forget his solo effort against Croatia in World Cup 98'.
Mikhael Silvestre Not too bad really, if he doesnt repeat his mistakes.
Bixente Lizarazu Extremely hardworking and still quite pacey.
Patrick Vieira Probably the greatest ball winner in modern football. Can't do without him.
Claude Makelele No flair, no skills, cant be seen much but very essential.
Robert Pires When he's hitting form he's irresistible.
Zinedine Zidane He's the heartbeat of the team. The best player in the world. What else is there to be said? Basically, this great man produces great moments.
Thierry Henry Extremely fast, extremely skillful. Deadly. An all-rounder.
David Trezeguet Good finisher. More towards a poacher. He produces some nice header actions.

The Winning Team: 2000. Deschamps was the captain.
