Former Nerazzurri Sporting Director Marco Branca felt that striker Edin Dzeko’s goal in Inter’s Serie A clash with Bologna on Wednesday was reminiscent of the iconic goal scored by Zinedine Zidane for Real Madrid in the 2002 Champions League final.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, as reported by FCInterNews, Branca compared Dzeko’s volley to the one that Zidane famously scored to win Los Blancos the Champions League over Leverkusen two decades ago.

Dzeko could not have hit the volley for Inter’s equalizer in the first half against Bologna much better.

The 36-year-old watched the ball come all the way down and then struck it with perfection in timing and technique.

Zidane had scored one of the most famous goals of this type when playing for Los Blancos in the Champions League final in 2002.

For Branca, Dzeko’s goal was in the same calibre as the legendary Frenchman’s.

“It reminded me, in the technique used, of Zidane’s goal from the 2002 Champions League final,” he said.

“Both seem to use their foot almost like a racquet, both goals were equally beautiful.”

Branca continued that “Dzeko, despite his age, is continuing to prove himself at a high level.”
