Interested in meeting a World Cup champion today?
Head over to N.C. Central University this afternoon. The university is hosting Lilian Thuram, a former world-class soccer player and French national team stalwart who was part of France's 1998 World Cup championship squad.
Thuram retired last year and now runs a foundation aimed at eradicating racism. That will be the topic of his talk today at 4:30 p.m. in room 1050 of the BRITE building.
As a player, Thuram was a big, strong defender. He didn't score a lot of goals, but he netted two when it counted: the 1998 World Cup semifinal against Croatia.
Here's one of them.
