ZIDANE IS SET to pull on the French jersey — 18-year-old Enzo Zidane that is.

Zinedine’s eldest son has been called up for a camp with France’s U19 side next month.

The young midfielder has come up through the ranks with Real Madrid’s academies and currently plays for the Juvenil ‘A’ side.

He is also eligible to represent Spain through his mother and Algeria through his grandparents but his decision to join the three-day camp at Clairefontaine is an indication of where his loyalties now lie.

Zidane’s three younger sons Luca, Theo and Eliaz, also play for Madrid’s youth teams.
