COACH HERVÉ RENARD

Sure, maybe your friend is suddenly interested in the Atlas Lions because of their upbeat tempo and stout defense (one goal conceded in eight African qualifiers). Or maybe it's because their coach, Hervé Renard, has the looks of a '90s Guess model: chiseled jaw, chest revealed by an excess of unfastened buttons, and long Jaime Lannister locks through which he's constantly running his hands. Profile aside, the French-born 49-year-old has tactical chops worthy of your attention: He has led two teams to the Africa Cup of Nations title.
