Alphonse Areola (born 27 February 1993 in Paris) is a French born Filipino goalkeeper who plays for Ligue 1 club SC Bastia, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

Club career[edit]

Areola finished his formation with Paris Saint Germain, after playing for INF Clairefontaine and Petits Anges. In July 2009, he signed a professional deal with PSG.

On 18 May 2013, Aréola made his first team debut, replacing Salvatore Sirigu in the 48 minute of a 3-1 home win against. He went on to make a start the following weekend, in a 3-1 away win against Lorient.

On 23 July 2013 he was loaned to Ligue 2 side RC Lens for the season.[1]

On 26 July 2014, he was once again loaned, this time to fellow Ligue 1 team SC Bastia.[2]

International career[edit]

Aréola has played for France's U-18, U-19 and U-20 teams, although has yet to be called up by the French senior team.

Aréola was the hero of the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup Final after saving Uruguay's first two penalties — from Emiliano Velázquez and Giorgian De Arrascaeta — in the penalty shootout after the match had remained scoreless at the end of extra time.
