Move over, Zinedine, there’s a new Zidane in town. OK, that’s a little much, but it’s pretty awesome that young Enzo Zidane scored in his Real Madrid debut on Wednesday. The 21-year-old son of Zizou, Enzo came on at halftime for Isco in Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey tilt against Cultural Leonesa.
Never mind that he was making his senior debut. Never mind that that he was playing for his legendary father. Enzo took all that pressure and let it roll right off his shoulders, scoring a dandy goal to open his account less than 15 minutes into his debut.
Real Madrid fielded and understandably young lineup against their lower-division opponents, but the youngsters put on a show at the Santiago Bernabeu. Not only did Enzo make about as delightful a debut as a player can make, 23-year-old Mariano picked up a brace and an assist in the 5-1 win.
Los Blancos move on to the final 16 of the Copa del Rey, and a new Zidane starts his journey at Real Madrid. All in all, not a shabby day for Real Madrid. And an even better one for the Zidane family.
