Our Champion for Peace

Blaise Matuidi

I am convinced that sport and its ideals can be life-changing for the greatest number of people, especially vulnerable young people, because it makes it possible to transmit fundamental values such as respect, tolerance and fair play.


Blaise Matuidi plays profesionnal football for Juventus and France national team as a midfielder. He began his football career playing for amateur clubs in Île-de-France region but he made his international debut in September 2010 in a UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying match. Ever since, he has been a key player in numerous international championships, including 2018 FIFA World Cup that he won in July 2018.
