    Football is both a place, a crystallisation of the passion for sport and a witness of identity-based fantasies. It’s also an interesting and relevant field to discuss migration issues.

    From the 1930s to today, football, notably via the composition of the France national team, is a reflection of the plurality of the French population. Raymond Kopa, Michel Platini, Zinedine Zidane, Basile Boli… By themselves, these four footballers make it possible to illustrate the four major waves of immigrations that France has known.
