The French defender is the idol of his home country. As a child he trained with twenty-year-olds and in Russia, with a crazy goal, he helped eliminate Argentina in the round of 16 of the World Cup which he then won
When you enter Jeumont, ten thousand inhabitants in the Hautes-de-France region, above the sign indicating the seven letters of the municipality that borders Belgium, there is another: “Ville de Benjamin Pavard”. Jeumont is the city – villa – of the Inter defender and his fellow citizens have been proud of him ever since he appeared in professional football: he is the character that people boast about when asked where he comes from. However, the need to put his name and surname in black and white (or rather, white on blue…) arose in 2018 when in Russia, with a crazy goal, he helped eliminate Argentina in the round of 16 of the World Cup which he then won. Before the Kazan Arena, in Tatarstan, Benjamin’s very long career began in Jeumont. Where everyone is so proud of him that they dedicate a celebratory sign to him.
