The World Cup may be over… but we here at Frenchly can’t stop thinking about Benjamin Pavard — defender on Les Bleus — #2 on the field and #1 in our hearts. Here’s proof that he’d make a wonderful boyfriend.

Reason #1 — He rises to the occasion

Did you see him score against Argentina? Come on — defenders aren’t even supposed to score, and a kick from that far away is more than impressive.

Reason #2 — He’s that guy that everybody loves. 

His fans even made a song about him.

Reason #3 – He’s a family man

He credits all of his success to his supportive family. What can we say? We love a guy who loves his parents.

Reason #4 — You’ll never get tired of his laugh

We can’t stop watching this adorable clip of him losing it in an interview. He seriously cannot stop laughing while being asked about his own success.

Reason #5 — He’s sensitive 

In an interview regarding his selection to be the defender for Les Bleus, he said, “I’m not going to lie to you, I cried.” We love his candor, and we’ll let him cry on our shoulders any day. (Try not to get emotional while watching him tear up when his parents tell him that they’re proud.)

Reason #6 — He’s humble

Holding a World Cup title at the age of 22, he’s got a lot to brag about, but he’s managed to stay humble. In an interview, he states, “I haven’t forgotten where I came from.” His visit to his hometown Jeumont serves as proof.

Reason #7 — He’s just all around adorable

All jokes aside, Benjamin Pavard just has that all around nice guy vibe. He’s got great hair, a nice smile, and exudes take-him-home-to meet-your-mom energy. Plus, we’re suckers for a French accent. On a Benjamin Pavard!
