The NFL will go into international mode. The US Football League has announced that players from its franchises will wear helmets in the colors of their country during the next two weekends of competition. A first in history. In total, fifty-five countries will be represented by more than two hundred players across the United States. Among them, Yannick Ngakoue will take the opportunity to display the colors of France.
Born in Washington, of Martinican origin
The Indianapolis Colts defensive end, born in Washington, will thus honor his Martinican origins. The 27-year-old will wear his blue-white-red helmet this Sunday against the Tennesse Titans (7 p.m.), then against the Denver Broncos on October 7.
Yannick Ngakoue has been playing in the NFL since 2016. Before arriving in Indiana, the 27-year-old distinguished himself with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders .
