Carrasso earned his place in France’s World Cup squad as a reward for two excellent seasons at Toulouse and Bordeaux, but is yet to make his debut and will be third-choice keeper in South Africa.
He began his professional career with Marseille, although his senior debut came during a loan spell with Crystal Palace during the 2001/02 season.
He returned to Marseille but struggled to make the number one shirt his own and was sent on loan to Guingamp (2004/05) and then frozen out following the signing of France international keeper Steve Mandanda.
He left for Toulouse the following year, helping the club create the meanest defence in the French top flight and quickly earning himself a move to champions Bordeaux.
He played in 39 games this season as the club reached the Champions League quarter-finals and finished sixth in Ligue 1. His younger brother Johann plays in goal for Montpellier.
