Player Information


Personal life

Benjamin Pavard (born 28 March 1996) is a French footballer who plays as a defender for VfB Stuttgart and the French national team. Although usually deployed as a centre-back, Pavard is also capable of playing as a right-back. Pavard began his career at Lille OSC in Ligue 1 and transferred to VfB Stuttgart in 2016, where he won the 2. Bundesliga in his first season. He made his international debut in November 2017 and won the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Club career

Born in Maubeuge, Nord, Pavard is a youth exponent from Lille. Pavard made his Ligue 1 debut at 31 January 2015 against FC Nantes, playing the full game in a 1–1 away draw.

VfB Stuttgart
2016–17 season
On 30 August 2016, Pavard moved to VfB Stuttgart, signing a four-year contract. Pavard made his debut in the 2. Bundesliga on 3 October, scoring in a 4–0 home win over SpVgg Greuther Fürth. He played 21 games and his team ended the season as league champions.

2017–18 season
He made his Bundesliga debut on 19 August in a 2–0 loss at Hertha BSC. Pavard scored his first goal in the top flight on 29 October in a 3–0 win over SC Freiburg at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. He extended his contract with Stuttgart on 20 December 2017 until 30 June 2021. He was one of only four players to feature in every second of the 2017–18 Bundesliga season. He played in several positions, namely right-back, centre-back, defensive midfielder and right wing, but after the appointment of Tayfun Korkut as manager in January 2018 he was exclusively a centre back; the team conceded 10 goals in their last 14 games as they went from near the relegation places to finish 7th, only just missing out on a UEFA Europa League place.

International career

On 6 November 2017, he was selected by France’s head coach Didier Deschamps for the friendly matches against Wales and Germany. Pavard made his debut against the Welsh on 10 November in a 2–0 win at the Stade de France, replacing Christophe Jallet at half time.
2018 World Cup. On 17 May 2018, Pavard was called up to the 23-man French squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. On 16 June, he made his World Cup debut in a 2–1 victory over Australia. On 30 June, Pavard scored his first international goal, a long range shot from outside the penalty area, in a 4–3 victory over Argentina in the World Cup’s round of 16. The goal was later voted as goal of the tournament. He also became the first French defender to score a goal in the World Cup since Lilian Thuram scored against Croatia in the 1998 semi-final. Pavard won the World Cup, after starting all of France’s games except for their last group match against Denmark.
