Lizarazu and Gullit to conduct Euro 2016 draw

09 December 2015, 21:22

Paris - France's World Cup-winning left-back Bixente Lizarazu and former Dutch star Ruud Gullit will conduct Saturday's draw in Paris for next year's Euro 2016 finals to be held in France.

Lizarazu, a member of France's 1998 world champions as well as the side that won Euro 2000, will be joined by Gullit, who captained the Netherlands to European glory in 1988, as the six groups for the 24-team tournament are decided.

The duo will be assisted by a handful of other former stars including Lizarazu's international team-mate David Trezeguet, whose golden goal saw France beat Italy 2-1 in the 2000 final, and Antonin Panenka.

Panenka wrote his name into the history books with his winning penalty for Czechoslovakia in the shootout of the 1976 final against West Germany.

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque, who guided his country to the title in 2012, will also be present along with Germany's 1996 hero Oliver Bierhoff and Angelos Charisteas, whose header won the 2004 title for Greece.
