after France '98, I was always Zinedine Zidane. because Zizou.
sometimes I pretended to be David Beckham (pulled this one off quite well, because I was the only one of my friends who could cross and take free-kicks like him. a talent that lapsed substantially...).
when I was in goal, I was Peter Schmeichel. obv. although like lots of English lads after aforementioned tournament, I got a little bit obsessed with the Dutch, and would sometimes pretend to be Van Der Sar. which was cool, until an unfortunate incident with a slippery football and some rubbish goalie gloves in a school match, I lost all my confidence in goal.
other people must have done this. who did you pretend to be as a kid?
