World Cup Memories: Distin


Our ‘World Cup Memories’ series continues today with Sylvain Distin’s recollections of a golden year in France’s footballing history.

The defender was just 20 years old when Les Bleus triumphed in their homeland back in 1998.

Watch the video above to hear Distin discuss his memories of the great French team that contained Zinedine Zidane, Marcel Desailly, Lauren Blanc and Lilian Thuram.
