Onze de tous les temps des joueurs africains de D1/ L1

Un petit commentaire peut-être? Tout d'abord la bataille fût rude entre l'actuel gardien lillois Vincent Enyeama et l'ancien Marseillais et Bordelais (et Stéphanois...et Toulonais) Joseph-Antoine Bell. Enyeama l'a emporté. Pourquoi? A cause d'une certaine régularité dans la performance bien qu'il ne compte que deux "saisons pleines" dans le Championnat de France contre 9 pour Bell, jalonnées du reste, de parades plus extraordinaires les unes que les autres. Mais Enyeama incarne l'image du gardien moderne. Sûr, efficace, parfois même spectaculaire.
Mais surtout, que fait Dahleb au poste d'arrière gauche? Et bien c'est simple, puisque je ne pouvais me décider pour un 3ème (ou 4ème défenseur si on classe Diarra comme tel) entre Taïwo, son lointain prédécesseur au poste d'arrière gauche à l'OM, Ben Miloud, l'excellent libéro Naybet (resté une saison seulement en France, à Nantes), le polyvalent (malgré lui) Mahjoub ou encore le toujours Olympien Nkoulou. "Djilla" Diarra tiendra en tout cas la baraque derrière l'indiscutable trio de milieux offensifs plutôt qu'un Mahjoub, que nous avons déjà cité et qui était bien trop technique pour être cantonné à tenir un tel rôle. Ingrat. Il a dû "dépanner" aux postes défensifs que ce soit avec le Racing ou en Equipe de France mais ici nous le reserverons pour entrer en cours de jeu au milieu de terrain. Et il fallait vraiment un quasi-stoppeur entre la défense et ce milieu de terrain-là.

Pour le reste, "no-comment" mais peut-être trouveriez-vous de meilleurs choix à faire? En cas de "trous", il y a en tout cas une bonne liste à laquelle se référer. Sans modestie.


A little comment perhaps? At first, the battle was fierce between the current Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama and the former Marseille and Bordeaux keeper (and former Saint-Etienne, and Toulon) Joseph-Antoine Bell. Enyeama won. What for? Because of a certain regularity in the performance although he has only two "full seasons" in the Championship of France against 9 for Bell, 10 years wich are ponctuated with many extraordinary saves. But Enyeama embodies the image of the modern goalkeeper. Safe, effective, sometimes even spectacular.
But above all, what does Dahleb at left-back? Well it's simple, that's because I could not decide myself to a 3rd (or 4th class defender if Diarra as such) between Taïwo, its distant predecessor at left-back at OM, Ben Miloud, the excellent libero Naybet (stayed only one season in France, at FC Nantes), the versatile (despite himself) Mahjoub or the always Olympian Nkoulou. "Djilla" Diarra will be in any case the lock behind the undebatable trio of midfielders rather than Mahjoub that we have already mentioned and which was too technical to be confined to hold such a role. Ungrateful. He had to "troubleshoot" at defensive positions either with Racing or the French National Team but here, we keep him in reserve to enter during the play in midfield. And a near-stopper was really needed the between defense and that midfield there. 

Otherwise, "no-comment" but perhaps would you find better choices to make? In the case of  a blackout, there is in any case a good list that refer to a good number of players. Without modesty.
