Patrice Evra – France vs Senegal

The veteran defender was born in Senegal, but he chose not to represent the Teranga Lions. Evra’s father is Guinean, and his mother from Cape Verde, so the natural born leader could have played for a selection of African teams, but he chose France. He will add his experience to the host nation squad this June, having played for Les Bleus since 2004.
