Zidane scored twice in the final 20 years ago as Les Bleus beat Brazil 3-0.

But the goalscorer turned provider as he played a neat one-two with Henry before the striker produced a trademark first-time finish.

In France’s 3-2 win, Henry broke forward and produced a cheeky ‘no-look’ pass to Zidane who played it back into the path of the forward.

Using the inside of his boot, Henry curled in an unstoppable strike to leave the keeper with no chance.

The clash was a throwback to legends who used to grace the game and included Fernando Morientes and Gaizka Mendieta who were both on the scoresheet for the visitors.

Usain Bolt also made an appearance with former Italy striker Christian Vieri in the side.

Zidane grabbed one for himself to make it 2-2 when he curled in a free-kick off the post.
