West Ham United and France international Dimitri Payet features in our list of top 50 players at Euro 2016.
Dimitri Payet – Will play Romania, Albania and Switzerland
HITC Sport writers have compiled a list of the top 50 players at Euro 2016, assessing players from across the 24 countries taking part at this summer’s tournament.
Coming in at number 22 is France and West Ham United attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet after a successful season at club level.
International record: 17 Caps, 2 Goals
2015/16: Dimitri Payet joined West Ham United from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille in the summer of 2015 and took the Premier League by storm.
Had the France international midfielder not suffered an injury in the middle of the season, then he could have guided West Ham to a top-four finish in the league.
The 29-year-old scored nine goals and created 116 chances in 30 Premier League appearances for West Ham this past season.
What can we expect? Payet has been able to earn just 17 caps for France so far in his career, which suggests that he is not a regular in France team.
It remains to be seen if the former Lille attacking midfielder starts for his national side at the Euro 2016 finals.
Payet is a very creative player, and he will be able to make an impact on matches even as a substitute.
