Let’s play fantasy football. A typical team of a team Brittany would be a mouthful. Here’s our pick. Do you think this team will get out of the group stage and go through several rounds?

The best goalkeeper of the world championship in cages

In purpose, this Alex Thepot who clings to it. The best goalkeeper of the first World Cup held in Uruguay in 1930, he was noted and respected by his peers. He played 31 times with the French national team. At number 2, we can count on it Michael Landreau.

Menhirs on the defensive

To win the World Cup, you have to know how to defend well. Hello Blues of 2018. Better than KimYvonne Le Roux, nicknamed “Menhir”. The central defender experienced the brightest period of “Marseille” and “Blues” (European champion in 1984). Very strong, he will be able to take several headers to score from a set piece. We choose to play left or right in defense Romain Danze. Not technically the strongest, it will represent the spirit of Douarnez’s native Brittany.

We choose for experience Jeremy Morel. Born in Quimperle, the centre-back spent his prime at clubs such as Lorient, Marseille and Lyon. If we have a problem on the side, it can slide to the left. Hello Didier Deschamps.

As a replacement party, we choose Finisterre Louis Cardie. The defender, who won the French Cup with Rennes in 1965 and 1971, made six caps for France in the 1960s.

Medium with technical players

The Breton midfielder is more assured. We bet Paul LeGuen. “Pencra’s potato” went through Brest, Nantes and even PSG. Be careful, he might steal our coaching position. Holding home in midfield, Fugerais Eduardo Kamavinga will do. He can be replaced by another Fujera in the same position on the bench: Fabien Lemoine.

We could line up in the middle Jeremy Menez Raymond was one of 58 players selected by Domenech for the Brittany team. We’re betting on the Vannetais to replace him on the clock Frederick Sammaritano to collect the ends of the match.

In attacking midfield, Raymond Keruzort for our benefit. Having won the French Cup with Rennes in 1971, he stands out for his technical ease. He will wear the Blues jersey twice. For a little more creation, we can put Yoann Gourcuff When he played in Bordeaux. Jordan Veretout will remain on the bench.

Gonzalo Higuain-Stéphane Guivarc’h in attack

Yes, you read that right. Gonzalo Higuain It’s Breton. He was born in Brest. He is the son of Stade Brestois player Jorge Higuain. Passed by Real Madrid or Juventus, he preferred Argentina (75 games) to France. The Finistian would easily take his place in Brittany’s team.

El Pipita will be accompanied in the attack by Stephane Guivarc’h. The French championship scorer with Auxerre in 1997 and 1998 should irritate many defences. Kevin Gameiro (RC Strasbourg) can explode at the end of matches.

Good to know. To create this typical team, we have recruited players who can be called up to the Brittany Football Team (BFA). For our selection criteria, you must be born in historic Brittany (five departments). We take players at the peak of their performance.
