Michaël Belkacem Fabre (born July 15, 1984 in Draguignan, France) is an Algerian footballer who is currently playing as a goalkeeper for US Boulogne.[1]

Early life[edit]

Fabre was born on 15 July 1984 in Draguignan, France, to Mohamed Belkacem and Veronique Fabre, a father of Algerian origin and a French mother. His father is a native of Oran.[2]

International career[edit]


Fabre represented France in international competition at the junior level and was part of the French Under-17 National Team that won the 2001 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Trinidad and Tobago. He was also a member of the French Under-21 team that won the 2004 edition of the Toulon Tournament.[3]


Being of Algerian descent, Fabre was also eligible to represent Algeria and expressed his desire to do so.[2] On July 18, 2011, newly appointed Algeria manager, Vahid Halilhodžić, called up Fabre to the Algerian National Team for a five-day training camp in Marcoussis, France.[4] On August 10, 2011, he made his unofficial debut for the team, participating in an intra-squad match by replacing Raïs M'Bolhi at halftime.[5]
