France is one of the strongest countries when it comes to football. Current FIFA World Cup champions, the European nation has open doors for footballers from French territories, including Tahiti and New Caledonia from Oceania.
It is known that many players from these territories play in France like Georges Gope-Fenepej from New Caledonia and Terai Bremond from Tahiti. While these players are already known in French football, another player from New Caledonia is ready to debut in Europe: Mickael Tiaou.
Tiaou is a 28-year-old defender who left AS Magenta and moved to France. After some months in his new place, it was confirmed that he is going to play for Montreuil-Juigné Béné Football – a team that plays in Pays de la Loire Regional 3, a regional league that is part of French 8th tier.
He made his official debut for New Caledonia National Football Team last year in a 3-0 loss to Fiji. He played seven matches for Les Cagous. Oceania Football Center wish him good luck in his new club.
