Lucas Hernandez has football in his DNA. The son of former centre-back Jean-Francois Hernandez, he was born in Marseille during his father's spell at the French club – as was his brother Theo, who currently plays for Real Madrid. 

Hernandez represented France from U-16 to U-23 levels, but the left-back had to wait until March this year for his senior debut, earning his chance to shine due to Benjamin Mendy's long injury absence. His superb season with Atletico Madrid ultimately proved telling, Hernandez helping Los Colchoneros win the UEFA Europa League and finish second in La Liga to book a place in Didier Deschamps's squad for Russia 2018.
