France is known for producing the most exciting talent in the world of football, and this time they’ve produced a real prodigy in 17-year-old Eduardo Camavinga. The kid plays in the Ligue 1 with Rennes as a midfielder. He came in the 63rd minute replacing N’Golo Kante in the game against Croatia. He was scouted by the French national team at the age of 15 when he played for the under-18 side. He has been linked to big clubs like Real Madrid and PSG. When he comes on the pitch, he makes players around him better which is a big thing for a kid his age.
His family moved to France from Mongolia during the civil war when he was 2-years-old. He will play in the UEFA Champions League next season with Rennes, and it’ll be exciting to see him at the highest level. He’s the youngest international debutante for France since 1914 at the age of 17 years and 303 days.
“First of all I feel joy and pride for my family and for all French people,” he told TF1 after the match. “I have no idea where this confidence comes from, I have often played with older players, and it surely allowed me to have a greater maturity to play with them.
“It was pretty crazy this first week at Clairefontaine, I had already come with the Bleuets (France youth national teams). I was very well received and it went well. Yes, my goal is to come back, of course, and first of all to concentrate on performing well with my club because we have a match on Sunday and then with the national team if I am called back.”
