Former Garbage Man To Make French Debut

stevesavidanFour years ago, striker Steve Savidan was playing semiprofessional football and was supplementing his income as a garbage man.  Now, the 30-year-old should make his international debut tonight for France.

Savidan signed as a 26-year-old flameout with then third-division Valenciennes FC in 2004.  He scored 61 goals for the club over the next four seasons, spearheading back to back promotions to bring the club to Ligue 1.

The Frenchman moved to SM Caen last summer for €5 million.  He has seven goals and five assists in 14 appearances this season.

Though Savidan earned his call up, it reflects dimly on young French strikers’ not named Benzema.  Far from mere sentiment, Savidan could earn the fourth striker role behind Henry, Anelka and the aforementioned Lyon man.
