Corentin Tolisso is yet another gem from the Lyon youth academy, and it was at Lyon where he took his first steps as a professional. Blossoming over four seasons in Ligue 1, the versatile midfielder eventually caught the eye of Bayern Munich, and he has taken his game to a fresh level since joining the Bundesliga giants last summer.

Tolisso's France debut came a few months earlier than his Bayern switch, with a starting berth in a 2-0 friendly defeat by Spain last March. Didier Deschamps clearly liked what he saw and has demonstrated his faith in Tolisso several times since, not least by starting him in two crucial FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers – a 1-0 victory in Bulgaria and a 2-1 victory over Belarus that ultimately secured France's place at Russia 2018.
