Sylvain Wiltord (born 10 May 1974 in Neuilly-sur-Marne) is a Frenchmarker football forward whose parents come from Guadeloupemarker. With the French national team, Wiltord has won Euro 2000 and reached the final of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

Club career

He was ever present in his first term at Bordeaux and scored 22 goals the next season, 1998/99, as Bordeaux won the French Ligue 1 championship.

Arsenal

Wiltord was signed by Englishmarker club Arsenal for a then club-record fee of £13 million in August 2000, weeks after scoring the stoppage-time equalizer in the Euro 2000 Final. He played 175 times occasionally pairing Thierry Henry up front or otherwise starting either from the bench or on the wing. The record club-record fee was not surprassed for the next eight-and-a-half years, when Arsenal paid £15 million for the Russianmarker Andrei Arshavin in January 2009.

The highlight of his Arsenal career was scoring his goal at Old Traffordmarker, a 1–0 win which clinched the 2001–02 Premier League title at the home ground of arch-rivals Manchester United as Arsenal did "the Double". He scored a total of 49 goals for the club, and was part of Arsenal's 2003–04 unbeaten season, though he did not feature much towards the end of the campaign and near the end of his Arsenal career.

In June 2008 he was voted 33rd in a list of the top 50 Arsenal players ever.

Lyon

When his contract with Arsenal expired in the summer of 2004, Wiltord took the opportunity to return to France with Olympique Lyonnais.Moving to Lyon, Wiltord found further success, winning three Ligue 1 titles and reaching the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League in successive seasons.

Rennes

Wiltord signed for Rennes in August 2007 on a 2-year contract and with an opportunity to join the coaching staff when his playing days end.

Marseille

He joined Olympique de Marseille on 15 January 2009 for the rest of the Ligue 1 season. On 17 May 2009 he scored Marseille's only goal in a 3–1 loss to Lyon at home.He was released at the end of the 2008-09 season, and is now pondering a possible move to either America, UAE or perhaps retirement. He has recently been linked with Belgian side Standard Liege.

International career

Wiltord made his debut for France in a 2–0 victory over England on 10 February 1999 at Wembley Stadiummarker. For France, Wiltord has been capped 92 times, scoring 26 goals. One of these goals came in stoppage-time of the Euro 2000 final against Italy to tie the match 1–1 and bring the game to extra-time. France would then win the final with a golden goal by David Trézéguet.

Wiltord also played for his country at the 2002 World Cup where France endured a shocking first round exit, without a single win or scoring a single goal, in the worst ever performance by a defending champion at the World Cup.

Most recently, he was part of Raymond Domenech's France squad that played in the 2006 World Cup final against arch-rivals Italy. Wiltord scored France's first penalty in the ensuing penalty shootout following the 1–1 draw, however France would lose the shootout 5–3.

Within that time frame, Wiltord also took part at Euro 2004 in Portugalmarker, having played seven games in the qualifying campaign with a fantastic return of six goals. However, a poor performance from Les Bleus saw a shocking quarter-final exit at the hands of eventual surprise winners Greece.
