Gullit and Lizarazu to conduct EURO draw

Ruud Gullit and Bixente Lizarazu will be conducting Saturday's UEFA EURO 2016 finals draw, with a cast of other stars from past finals set to help out in Paris.

UEFA European Championship heroes Ruud Gullit and Bixente Lizarazu will be conducting the UEFA EURO 2016 draw with a fine supporting cast.

Captain of the Netherlands team that prevailed at the 1988 finals Gullit will be front of house at the ceremony in Paris, along with France's UEFA EURO 2000-winning left-back Lizarazu.

They will be assisted by a raft of other great players who shone in the continental finals. Oliver Bierhoff scored the decisive goal as Germany prevailed at EURO '96, while Angelos Charisteas headed Greece's winner in the 2004 decider.

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque played at the 1980 tournament, and led La Roja to glory at UEFA EURO 2012.

Gullit on Netherlands' greatest day

Antonín Panenka will be there, having inscribed his name into the footballing lexicon with his audacious penalty in Czechoslovakia's 1976 shoot-out success against West Germany.

Finally, David 'Trezegol' Trezeguet will be on hand, the striker's golden goal in the 2000 final against Italy having brought France the most recent of their successes in Europe's top national-team competition.
