Pape N'Diaye Souaré (French: [pap swaʁe];[3] born 6 June 1990) is a Senegalese professional footballer who plays as a left back for Premier League club Crystal Palace.

Club career[edit]

Born in Mbao, Pikine Department, Souaré spent his early career with Diambars, Lille II, Lille and Reims.[2][4][5]

He moved to Crystal Palace on a three-and-a half-year deal in January 2015 for an undisclosed fee,[6] reported as £3.45 million.[7] He made his Palace debut on 14 February in the fifth round of the FA Cup, a 2–1 home loss to Liverpool, and was described by Dominic Fifield of The Observer as looking "rusty and susceptible".[7]

On 22 January 2016, it was announced that Souaré had signed a new three-and-a half-year contract with Palace.[8] He was sent off on 13 February at the end of a 2–1 loss to Watford at Selhurst Park, for fouling Valon Behrami.[9]

After over a year out of football following a car crash, Souaré made his first appearance on 19 September 2017 in a 1–0 home win over Huddersfield Town in the third round of the EFL Cup. He was praised for his performance by manager Roy Hodgson.[10]

International career[edit]

Souaré made his international debut for Senegal on 29 February 2012, in a goalless friendly draw against South Africa at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.[2][11] He later competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics,[12][13] and was a squad member at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.[14] He scored his first international goal from a 20-yard free kick on 29 March 2016 as the Lions de Teranga won 2–1 away to Niger in 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification.[15] Following his car crash, he returned to the national team in March 2018.[16]

He was not included in Senegal's squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.[17]

Personal life[edit]

On 11 September 2016, Souaré was airlifted to hospital after being involved in a road accident on the M4. He sustained injuries to his thigh and jawbone.[18] It was thought that he would be out for 6 months,[19] although he returned to training after 11 months.[20][21]
