Each international break is the opportunity for several players who took part in the Maurice Revello Tournament to make their international debut. Over the last days, some of them earned their first international cap.
Meshal Barsham (Qatar)
The Maurice Revello Tournament 2019 graduate seems to have taken a decisive advantage in the national team goalkeeper hierarchy. The 22-year-old goalkeeper has played his first two games with Qatar during the friendlies against Costa Rica (1-1) and then South Korea (1-2). Two encounters played in full by the Al Sadd player, far from being anecdotal…
Sébastien Haller (Ivory Coast)
Runner-up of the Maurice Revello Tournament 2014 with France, Sébastien Haller has switched his international allegiance as he opted for Ivory Coast. At 26, the West Ham powerful striker enjoyed a successful debut with Les Elephants as he scored during the AFCON qualifier against Madagascar (2-1).
Husain Sabba (Bahreïn)
Three friendlies for as many wins for Bahrain during this international break. The 23-year-old defender has played his first minutes at the senior international level against United Arab Emirates (3-1). Husain Jameel Shabba was on the pitch during one hour.
One year after their last official appearance, Angolans were back on the pitch during these African Cup of Nations qualifiers. The Palancas Negras earned their first point in these qualifiers against DR Congo (0-0). During this game, the Maurice Revello Tournament 2017 graduate Milson made his intenational debut. A just reward for the 21-year-old midfielder who is starting to make a name for himself in the Portuguese top-flight with Maritimo.
In a sensational form with Flamengo, the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019 winner earned his first international cap with the Seleçao as he came off the bench during the World Cup 2022 qualifier against Venezuela (1-0). Without doubt, the 23-year-old striker has enjoyed this special moment, especially when we remember that we was struggling in Italy with Fiorentina just one year ago…
Won-sang Eom (Corée du Sud)
Since his participation at the Maurice Revello Tournament 2018, the 21-year-old forward has discovered the K-League (South Korean First Division) and has notably found the net several times. Enough to allow him to represent the South Korea national team during this international break. Won-Sang Eom played his first game with the Taegeuk Warriors during the friendly against Qatar (2-1).
