’s French born defender has switched allegiance to play for ’s national team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Falette was born in Le Mans, however they have an abundance of talent in his position to the extent that the likes of Clement Lenglet and Aymeric Laporte remain uncapped.

The 26 year old Falette has worked his way up from the lower leagues in France to reach the level of Eintracht where his side won the DFB Pokal and are currently in the UEFA Europa League.

Guinea are beginning to put together a formidable squad as Falette will be added onto the likes of Naby Keita, Amadou Diawara, Francois Kamano and Ibrahima Traore who are already in the squad.

While they are not qualified yet, Guinea appear to be cruising to AFCON and will require just one point in their last two games at home against Ivory Coast and away at Rwanda to secure qualification.

Falette may make his international debut in Guinea’s next game as previously mentioned against Ivory Coast in Conakry on the 18th of November at 7PM Egyptian time.
