Granddi N'Goyi Majundu (born 17 May 1988 in Melun, Seine-et-Marne) is a French football player of Congolese descent who currently plays for Italian club Palermo.

Club career[edit]

N'Goyi was born to DR Congolese parents in Melun, a suburb of the French capital Paris, began his career in the youth ranks of capital club Paris Saint-Germain. In 2007 he graduated to the first-team and moved on 7 January 2009 on loan to Clermont Foot.[2] On 28 June 2012, he signed a three-years contract with newly promoted in Ligue 1 Troyes AC.[3]

In the summer 2013 he moved on Italian club Palermo.

International career[edit]

Despite being of Congolese parents, N'Goyi represented the land of his birth, France at the UEFA European Under-19 Championship.

N'Goyi was handed the number 13 shirt for the tournament, and played all four games the French took part in. He was one of the French penalty takers in the semi-final match against Spain, and scored his penalty, although the Spaniards went on to win 4–2.[4][5][6][7]

In October 2008 he was called up to represent DR Congo, along with Paris Saint-Germain team mates Larrys Mabiala and Youssouf Mulumbu for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against rivals Malawi.[8][9]

N'Goyi accepted his call up, but did not make his debut, as his team were surprisingly beaten 2–1 by Malawi, having taken an early 1–0 lead, through former Portsmouth and Newcastle United striker Lomana LuaLua.[10]

On 3 August, he was called up to the France under-21 team for a friendly match against Poland. He made his debut in that match as a substitute. He was called up again, two weeks later, for their UEFA U-21 Championship qualifiers against Slovenia and Romania.
