Football is a devotion which never shows bias, on the basis of caste, race, color. All it sees is the passion. Passion to live football, passion to love football, passion to die on the ground, passion to win the matches and the same passion to accept the defeat.
And Team France truly carries these passion and real football terms. The team exposes globalization and races coming together showcasing immigration as a human condition.
Out of all the 2018 Fifa world cup players, there are only 5 “pure” French players on the team. Here are the players who value football over there own native countries:
•> Samuel Umtiti (born 14 November 1993) is a French professional footballer who plays as a center-back for Spanish club Barcelona and the France national team. Samuel Yves Umtiti was born in Yaoundé, the capital city of Cameroon. He was born to Mrs. Annie Ngo Um, his mother, and an unknown father. Samuel Umtiti was prurient in poverty. In a hit to survive, his parents gave their son out to a relative who took him and fled to France to combat a prominent living. All this happened when he was just 2 years old. In France, Umtiti grew up in a big family of immigrants from Cameroon. That very year 1995, harmonize with a time France and the rest of the world acclaimed the jolt of Roger Miller and his Cameroonian team as they tyrannized the center stage. This was a hike for Cameroonian immigrants in France.
The boom of the Cameroonian team had a surge sequel on black immigrants in France. This was to the nth degree censurable for the emanation of the resplendent 1993 generation of immigrant footballers such as Samuel Umtiti
•> Benjamin Mendy (born 17 July 1994) is a French professional footballer who plays as a left back for Premier League club Manchester City and the France national team. Benjamin Mendy was born in Longjumeau, France. He was born to his mother, Monique Mendy and father Mendy Snr. Benjamin Mendy’s family has their descent from Côte d’Ivoire. Mendy is of Senegal descent.
•>Kylian Mbappé Lottin was born in Bondy, north-east of Paris on 20th December 1998 by his Cameroonian father, Mr. Wilfried Mbappe (a coach) and an Algerian mother, Fayza Mbappe Lamari (an ex-handball player). As a mixed-race child born into a sporting family, one thing was cocksure for the punk juvenile “football.”
•>Mamady Sidibé born on 18 December 1979 in Kremis, Mali. Sidibé moved from his native Mali to France when he was two years old
•>Paul Pogba was born on March 15, 1993, in Lagny-Sur-Marne, France, to Fassou Antoine and Yeo Moriba. His parents were Guinean Muslims and lived in Conakry, Guinea before Paul was born. Worn of abjection, the family hauled to France for a sophisticated and effectuate life. This was one of the thousands of African families that moved to Europe during the African refugee crisis in the early 1990s.
France football team welcomed all these immigrants wholeheartedly.France became the team where foreigners are brothers and who by working together won the world cup.
