Luca Zidane receives France call-up

Luca Zidane has been called up by France's under-16 side, and could join his elder brother and illustrious father in representing their country.

Zinedine Zidane has much to teach Gareth Bale, on and off the pitch.
Zinedine Zidane is now assistant manager at Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane's eldest son and fellow midfielder, Enzo, 18, made his debut with the French under-19 side two weeks, ago, and now goalkeeper Luca, 15, has been called up by U16 coach Jean-Claude Giuntini to attend a four-day training camp next week.

"I'm going to use the same words as when Enzo was called up," Zidane Sr's former international teammate and French FA National Teams Director Willy Sagnol is quoted as saying in L'Equipe. "Luca has a French passport and a certain potential. It's normal that we want to see him to assess his qualities."

Luca, the second of the former France captain's four sons, trained with the Real Madrid first team for the first time on Sunday, watched over by his father, who is assistant coach to Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.
