Blaise Matuidi

Matuidi claimed one of the last places up for grabs in the French squad for Euro 2012, as he snapped up one of the spots vacated by the out of form Yoann Gourcuff.

Previously with Troyes and Saint-Etienne, Matuidi has built up a solid reputation as a holding midfielder who put the interests of the team ahead of his own and he has won praise from national team coach Laurent Blanc as a result in the run up to this tournament.

It was felt that he needed to leave Saint-Etienne to force his way into the international reckoning last summer and after being linked with a move to Liverpool, PSG were the club that gave him his chance to push for a Euro 2012 place. It was a move that has clearly worked out well for this gritty performer.
