Eugénie Anne Claudine Le Sommer-Dariel was born on 18 May 1989. She is a French professional soccer player who currently plays as a forward for Lyon and the France national team.

Le Sommer is primarily a creative offensive midfielder and left winger for her country, but she has also played as a second striker.

The midfielder is a very decorated player in modern women’s club soccer competitions. She has scored more goals for France than any other player of any gender.

She has 10 French domestic titles to her name and is one of only three players to have won an unprecedented eight European Cups with Lyon.

The player loves traveling, having traveled across the world, all credit to her lifestyle as a soccer superstar. 

Le Sommer loves going to the beaches and believes that beaches are the best places for her to practice soccer. 

She is also a big fan of the French striker Oliver Giroud, and she has been with him at several public events. 

Eugénie Le Sommer Parents: Thierry And Claudine

Eugénie is a very lucky woman as she has very supportive parents. Her father is Thierry, and her mother is Claudine Le Sommer. 

The couple has seven children, including five girls and two boys, one of whom is Le Sommer.

Thierry is a retired policeman who now spends his free time traveling around the world, being the biggest cheerleader of his daughter. 

Furthermore, he says that thanks to his retirement, he can now be a full-time Le Sommer fan.

However, Claudine herself is not new in the realm of women’s soccer. We can even say that Le Sommer draws a lot of inspiration from her mother. 

Claudine was a player for the Paris Saint-Germain back in 1982. This was a time when soccer was considered very much unsuitable for women.

Looking back, Claudine believes that gender discrimination, financial challenges, and a quest for recognition seriously impacted her soccer career.

Hence that was the reason why she did not want her daughter to pursue soccer as a career. 

However, Le Sommer would not listen to her mother at all. At four years old, she began asking her mother to enroll her in a soccer academy.

Claudine used to believe that the game was too rough and that it devalued femininity, a notion her daughter is currently disproving.
