Benjamin Pavard is among the most recent arrivals in the France ranks. The 22-year-old with the curly brown locks received his maiden call-up in November 2017, and he wasted little time in making his presence felt. Naturally talented and physically imposing at 6'2'', he also provides genuine versatility.
Pavard plays in central defence for Stuttgart, the club he joined in 2016 after starting out at Lille, but he has operated at right-back for France and can likewise be deployed as a defensive midfielder. Pacy, diligent and difficult to beat in one-on-one situations, the youngster from the north of France has also demonstrated his worth going forward. The future looks promising for Pavard.
