Description:

Christopher Martins Pereira joined Olympique Lyonnais youth academy in 2013 from Racing FC Union Luxembourg. He was eligible to represent both Luxembourg and Cape Verde at international level. He rejected a call-up from Luxembourg’s senior team in March 2013 as he had not decided which nation he wished to represent. After being called-up again by Luxembourg, he made his debut on 8 September 2014 against Belarus, at the age of 17. Thanks to his regular appearances in the national team he gained a lot of priceless experience from playing against the likes of Diego Costa, Andrés Iniesta, Marek Hamsik or Sergio Busquets.
