Maryan Wisniewski (born 1 February 1937 in Calonne-Ricouart) is a former French international footballer of Polish origin.[1]

He earned 33 caps and scored 12 goals for the France national football team, and played in the 1958 FIFA World Cup when France finished third. He made his international debut on 3 April 1955, thus becoming the youngest footballer to play for France at the age of 18 years and 2 months.

His great-nephew Jonathan Wisniewski is a current professional rugby union player for Grenoble.
