Zapping But! Football Club FC Nantes: the complete list of the Canaries
If he is only 23 years, 3 months and 20 days old, Alban Lafont (FC Nantes) is already part of the furniture in Ligue 1. Precocious talent in Toulouse, the former goalkeeper of the France Espoirs team will beat a new record this Saturday on the occasion of the trip of the Canaries on the lawn of OL.
Indeed, as Presse Océan reports, Lafont is about to live his 200th match in Ligue 1, a mark that he will be the youngest goalkeeper to reach in the top flight since the 1950-1951 season. It is also probably a record going beyond 71 years but the statistics of French football stop at this famous season…
If he is still a good distance from Michaël Landreau for the absolute record of matches in Ligue 1 (618), Alban Lafont still has fifteen years of career ahead of him to get this mark. It will also depend on his career choices, the captain of the Canaries being open to offers and likely to try his luck abroad again after his relative failure at Fiorentina.
The 200 mark for Lafont
This Saturday evening at Groupama Stadium during OL – FC Nantes, Alban Lafont (23) is preparing to cross a historic milestone for a player of his age. The captain of the Canaries will inscribe his name in capital letters in the history of Ligue 1.
