Lilian Thuram (born Ruddy, Lilian Thuram-Ulien, January 1, 1972
in Pointe-ŕ-Pitre, Guadeloupe) is a French football player. With
the French national team, Thuram won 1998 World Cup and Euro
2000. He is currently considered one of the best defenders in
Thuram's soccer career began with Monaco of the French Ligue 1
in 1991. Later stops included Parma (1996-2001) and Juventus -
his current club - in Italian Serie A. Thuram has won the
scudetto three times with Juventus.
For France, Thuram has been capped 111 times (as of March 2006)
and scored two goals. Amazingly, both of those goals came in one
game—the 1998 World Cup semifinal against Croatia, as France won
2-1 to advance to the final. He also played in the 2002 World
Cup, Euro 96, and Euro 2004. After a brief international
retirement, he returned to the French team on August 17, 2005.
Thuram was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living
footballers in March 2004.
