Zinedine Zidane quit the international stage the way he played the game - simply, quietly, effectively, diplomatically, stylishly and with the minimum amount of fuss.
The 32-year-old playmaker, affectionately known as Zizou, chose to make the announcement that he will never again pull on the famous blue shirt of France on his own website, www.zidane.fr
