41. Zinedene Zidane
Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2003 FIFA POY, 2002 Champions League Champion
An amazing name and the game to match, Zinedine Zidane gave us gems throughout this decade. A well respected Frenchman with a trademark smile, fancy footwork, true toughness, and scoring ability not rivaled by many, Zidane was a megastar of the football world. His biggest accomplishment to us however was when he gave the world arguably the most badass soccer moment in the history of soccer on its biggest stage when he went headbutting in the 2006 World Cup final against Italy. Refreshing to see a soccer player laying out opponent's headbutt-style for talking shit instead of faking injuries. Thank you Mr. Zidane, thank you.
