Éric Carrière (French pronunciation: ​[e.ʁik.ka.ʁjɛʁ] ; born 24 May 1973 in Foix, Ariège) is a former professional French association footballer who played for Dijon. He is a skilful playmaker who is adept at taking free-kicks, penalties, and corners for his team, as well as scoring from the run of play although he is primarily known for defence splitting passes. He is also known for the infamous picture of him getting a football straight to the face.
