The Night Zinedine Zidane Played In Dalymount Park

Legendary broadcaster Jimmy Magee pronounced his name Zidan-ay throughout the 2nd leg…

20 years ago Bordeaux came to Dalymount Park to play Bohemians in the UEFA Cup with a languid, promising midfielder in tow.

Zidane took on Pat ‘Nutsy’ Fenlon, Robbie Best and co. on a cold night in September. The Bohs boys acquitted themselves well on the night and were unlucky to lose 1-0.

The fabled Jimmy Magee curse (the 80s and early 90s forerunner of the notorious TV3 curse) struck again in the 2nd leg as Bordeaux and Zidane routed the Bohs 5-0. See both videos below.
