Footballs Greatest Moments – Football's Greatest Moments- The Three Musketeers France '98 - The fates of three men defined the World Cup of 1998. Years later they would line up alongside each other as Galacticos for Real Madrid, but in the steaming heat of France in 1998 David Beckham, Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane had very different ambitions. For Beckham it was a first international tournament. The great hope of English football offered the national team the foundation for the most competitive England team in years. The Brazilian Ronaldo was already the darling of world footballl, the greatest goalscorer of his era. If he stayed fit his goals could power Brazil to World Cup victory. For the hosts, political and racial turmoil defined the pre-tournament build up. Zinedine Zidane, born of Algerian immigrants in the ghettos of Marseille, was the poster boy for liberal France. Three men, with three very different outcomes, defined the narrative of a truly brilliant World Cup. The Three Musketeers features interviews with Michael Owen, Gareth Southgate, Gary Neville, Juan Sebastian Veron, Manu Petit, Christian Karembeu, Youri Djorkaeff and Edmundo.
