Samuel Piette (born 12 November 1994) is a Canadian soccer player who plays for the Montreal Impact as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Piette joined the youth team of FC Metz in 2009 but after French football rules, which state that a player must be 18 to sign a contract with a club, Piette joined Fußball-Bundesliga youth side Fortuna Düsseldorf on 26 June 2012.[2]

Fortuna Düsseldorf[edit]

After continuing to play for Fortuna Düsseldorf II Piette made his senior debut as a second-half substitute for Erwin Hoffer on 4 April 2014 in a 2-1 victory over SC Paderborn.[3]

Deportivo La Coruña[edit]

On 25 August 2014 Piette signed a one-year deal with Deportivo de La Coruña, being assigned to the reserves in Tercera División.[4] After overcoming fitness issues, Piette made his league debut against Bertamiráns on 30 November.[5] Piette was loaned to Racing de Ferrol for the 2015-16 season on 7 August 2015.[6]

Izarra[edit]

After terminating his contract with Deportivo on 15 July 2016,[7] Piette signed with Segunda División B club CD Izarra the following day.[8]

Montreal Impact[edit]

On 3 August 2017, Piette returned to Canada to sign with Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer, citing a desire to play in his hometown.[9][10] He would debut for the club on 12 August in a 3-0 win over Philadelphia Union, earning rave reviews, as well as a place in the MLS team of the week.[11][12][13][14]

International[edit]

Piette played for Canada's U17 soccer team, making his debut in the qualifiers for the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup. His team would go on to qualify for the tournament. Piette was also a part of Canada's U23 side, that attempted to qualify for the 2012 Olympics Football tournament, earning three caps. The team did not qualify for London 2012.

Piette was called up to the Canada's senior team for the first time for a friendly against Armenia in mid February but failed to see the pitch.[15] Piette made his senior international debut on 3 June 2012, coming on as an 85th-minute substitute for Julian De Guzman in a 0-0 draw with the United States at BMO Field.[16] This cap made Piette the third youngest player to ever suit up for the Canadian senior side. On 27 June 2013, Piette was listed as a part of the confirmed 23-man squad for Colin Miller's Canada squad for 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[17]

He was called up for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup by Benito Floro in June 2015, as well as the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup by Octavio Zambrano. Piette would earn rave reviews for his performance in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, particularly during group stage matches against Costa Rica and Honduras.[18][19][20]
