Reynald Pedros (born October 10, 1971 in Orléans, France) is a former French footballer of portugues descent.


He is a left-footed attacking midfielder, formed in Nantes. He was part of the magic trio of FC Nantes with Patrice Loko and Nicolas Ouédec. He formerly plays for Sud Nivernais Imphy Decize, a club in CFA2.

Pedros is not a talkative player, but is known for speaking out wisely when things are not moving in the correct direction for him.

He won the Ligue 1 with Nantes in 1995. The following year he reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Following this elimination, Pedros was made a pariah by the media and was greatly disliked by French fans. He attempted to make a comeback, in Ligue 2, but he was never able to come back to the top of his game.


His career bears some similarity to David Ginola's – a horrible mistake in the last World Cup '94 qualifying game leading to French elimination, and subsequently being dropped from the national side.

Before Euro 96, he was considered one of the best French midfielders, on par with Zinedine Zidane.

However, the Euro 96 semi-final, against the Czech Republic, came to a draw. The game went through extra time, and into a penalty shootout. After 5 successful penalties for each team, Pedros was to take the first of the penalties in sudden death. His shot was weak and slow, and was easily saved by the Czech goalkeeper, Petr Kouba. Miroslav Kadlec came to take the next penalty, scored it, and knocked France out of the tournament.
