Francois Moubandje grew up playing on the left side of the park but is equally happy in a more central position. He was born in Cameroon but came to Switzerland at the age of eight, and made his big breakthrough in 2010 when he signed his first pro terms at Servette. He soon started catching the eye in Geneva and was quickly called up to the Switzerland U-21 team.

The 5’11 defender got his first call up to the full international squad in October 2014 and one month later made his debut in a 4-0 win in the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania. His consistent performances in defence resulted in Moubandje being selected for the Swiss squad for the Euros in France, although he did not make an appearance. Now he will be hoping that he gets his chance at Russia 2018.
