Three times Champions League winner Zizou

France’s World Cup winning manager Didier Deschamps, Zlatko Dalic and Zinedine Zidane were nominated as the finalists for FIFA’s coach of the year award on Monday.

Deschamps became just the third man to win the World Cup as a player and coach with victory over Dalic’s Croatia in July’s final in Russia.

Zidane was a team-mate of Deschamps when France first won the World Cup in 1998 and is nominated after guiding Real Madrid to a third Champions League in his two-and-a-half year reign at the Bernabeu, before stepping down in June.

Scored stunning second: Vinicius Junior.

In front of the watchful eyes of Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui, Brazilian wonderkid Vinicius Junior netted two superb goals for Los Blancos’ Castilla side on Sunday afternoon.

The 18-year-old, who has yet to make his competitive debut for the Whites, is learning his trade in the club’s second team ranks having made the move from Flamengo this summer.

And the teen talent showed just what he is made of, cancelling out Atleti’s early opener with a strike in the sixth minute, before crashing in a thunderous right-footed drive from the angle for his second on 27 minutes.
