The goal ensured the "Les Blues" as they are commonly known, advancement to the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup. They are now set to meet with the current World champions, Brazil, whom just qualified by an unconvincing win over African hopefuls Ghana who made it to the last sixteen on their debut. Zinedine came back from retirement in order to play and assist France in their World Cup assault in Germany 2006 and this showed his critics that his still on par with the best in the world.
