Idris El Mizouni (born 26 September 2000) is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Cambridge United, on loan from Ipswich Town and the Tunisia national team.

Club career[edit]

Ipswich Town[edit]

Born in Paris, El Mizouni came through the academy at Ipswich. He made his professional debut for the club on 12 March 2019, in a 1–1 draw against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.[2] El Mizouni made four appearances in his debut season at Portman Road, having progressed through the club's under-18 and under-23 sides into the first team over the course of the 2018–19 season. His progress earned him his first call up to the senior Tunisia squad in June 2019, making him the first player in the club's history to be capped for Tunisia at senior level.[3]

He scored his first professional goal on 4 December 2019, scoring the opening goal in a 1–1 draw with Peterborough United at the London Road Stadium in an EFL Trophy second round tie, with Ipswich going on to win the match 5–6 on penalties.[4]

Cambridge United (loan)[edit]

On 23 January 2020, El Mizouni joined League Two club Cambridge United on loan for the remainder of the 2019—20 season.[5] He made his debut for the club on 25 January, appearing as a second-half substitute in a 1–1 draw with Morecambe.[6] He scored his first goal on 11 February, netting a 20-yard free-kick in a 0–2 away win over Scunthorpe United.[7]

International career[edit]

Mizouni was born in France and qualifies to play for Tunisia at international level through his father. In 2018 he was called up to the Tunisia Olympic squad for friendlies in preparation for the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifiers. He won his first cap in a friendly match against Italy U23 in Vicenza on 15 October 2018. He scored his first international goal in a 4–1 loss to Egypt on 15 November 2018.[8]

He made his senior international debut in a friendly on 7 June 2019, coming on as an 81st minute substitute in a 2-0 win over Iraq at the Stade Olympique de Rades stadium in Radès.[9] After making his international debut for his country, he stated "I'm really proud to have been called up, to be able to wear the shirt fills me with pride and happiness."[10]
