15 players you never know are from Africa. See their names and origin country.

Following the Euro 2020 tournament, there are some players with African origin that will play a big role in some of the European nations. The most interesting part is that most fans do not know that some of these players are Europeans. 

Without much ado, let's take a look at fifteen players that are originally from Africa but will play in the Euros. 

#15 Jamal Musiala. Nigerian. Plays for German National team and Bayern Munich 

#14 Nelson Semedo. Cape Verde. Plays for Portuguese National team and Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

#13 Ousmane Dembele. Mauritania and Senegal. Plays for Barcelona and France National team.

#12 Kurt Zouma. Central African Republic. Plays for Chelsea and France National team. 

#11 David Alaba. Nigeria. Plays for Bayern Munich and Austria National team 

#10 Adams Traore. Mali. Plays for Spain National team and Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

#9 Youri Tielemans. Congo DR. Plays for Leicester and Belgium National team. 

#8 Serge Gnabry. Cote d'Ivoire. Plays for Bayern Munich and German National team. 

#7 Romelu Lukaku. Congo DR. Plays for Inter Milan and Belgium National team. 

#6 Antonio Rudiger. Sierra Leone. Plays for Chelsea and German National team. 

#5 Leroy Sane. Senegal. Plays for Bayern Munich and German National team. 

#4 Paul Pogba. Guinea. Plays for Manchester United and France National team. 

#3 Ngozi Kante. Mali. Plays for Chelsea and France National team. 

#2 Kylian Mbappe. Algeria and Cameroon. Plays for PSG and France National team. 

#1 Karim Benzema. Algeria. Plays for Real Madrid and France National team. 

As we can see, most of the players in the France National team are not originally French. About fifty percent of the French squad are not indigenes of the country. This means that France would no have won the 2018 World Cup without the help of Africans. What is your opinion on this?
