The joy of Aurélien Tchouameni after his first goal for France
Thanks to a headed goal in stoppage time, the AS Monaco midfielder sealed a victory for France against Côte d'Ivoire (2-1) on Friday in a friendly match.

No time to lose! Aurélien Tchouameni did not wait long to score his first goal for France, and he hardly picked the worst time to do it. Starting in midfield on Friday against Côte d’Ivoire in a friendly, the AS Monaco midfielder gave victory to Les Bleus in stoppage time (2-1).

He's been here for a while, and thanks to his performances with us, he's a big plus plus in a very particular way. Even though he is used in a defensive role, he has capabilities technically and in getting forward. He is a complete player. He is young, but he asserts himself

On the end of a corner by Mattéo Guendouzi in the 93rd minute, “Tchouam” scored with a powerful header which thrilled the Stade Vélodrome. It was his first goal with the senior side, on the occasion of his 8th cap. It inevitably delighted our player, who has already won a title with France, the Nations League, at the start of the season alongside Wissam Ben Yedder.

“It’s wonderful what’s happened”

“My performance tonight? It’s the fruit of hard work,: confided the AS Monaco midfielder after the match.” It’s wonderful what’s happened. I have several different goals, and to score my first goal was one, now we will move on. The team and the staff have helped me a lot.” Bravo Aurélien for this first goal!

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
