Mickaël Landreau

Mickaël Vincent André-Marie Landreau (born 14 May 1979 in Machecoul) is a French professional football goalkeeper who plays for Bastia. He has 11 caps for the French national team. Landreau has made the most top-flight appearances of any player in the French league. Landreau will retire at the end of the season.

Landreau was recalled to the French national team in 2012 by newly appointed manager Didier Deschamps for France's upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification matches against Finland on 7 September and Belarus on 11 September, thus replacing Cedric Carrasso as France's number 3 goalkeeper, including for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
