Certainly one of the best French strikers of his generation, could achieve even more if he didn't insist playing in defence later in career. He was, what later will be known as, "Total Footballer". Player with unusual defensive work at the time, but also great dribbler and scorer with good positioning and even passing range. He was fast, run 100 meters 11,1 seconds, played as winger and centre forward, later deeper in midfield and defence, whatever the team needed of him. Jacques Foix played up to his 21 years at Stade Montois, the club of his birthplace, football. The talent of center forward in the small amateur club was recognized early, so he has also been appointed as teenager in the French vintage selection. 1951 brought him the RC Paris, and Foix already put in his first season as a professional footballer 11 goals. When Racing a year later in the was relegated second division, he found in the AS Saint- Étienne a new clu. With the Stéphanois he played in the next three years with always the championship , even if it never quite enough to win the title, he was in 1954/55 with 17 hits fifth and 1955/56, with 20 point game gates even third best scorer. 1956 joined Jacques Foix to reigning French champions OGC Nice, where he played the next five years. In the first year on the Côte d' Azur, he brought it to the "young eagles " - Aiglons was and is widespread in France nickname of the OGC player - in the Cup semi-finals ; this remained the biggest success he has achieved throughout his career in this prestigious competition. For this he won 1958/59 with the championship of Division 1 his first title, after the team after numerous disposals had experienced a sharp break. Foix, who was among the remaining boning the elf next to Victor Nurenberg and André Chorda had contributed to the league title 18 hits and brought it so once again among the top ten scorers in the league. However, although Nice for the following season with Héctor De Bourgoing further enhanced, two seasons joined, in which the national Aiglons again only represented mediocrity. In the European Cup of Champions 1959/60, however, they met after wins against Shamrock Rovers and Fenerbahçe Istanbul in the quarter-finals - just like 1956/57 - eventual winners Real Madrid against whom it this time but at least won their home game, which until then had no French team had succeeded. Both sweeps Jacques Foix denied all games of OGC Nice and was with five hits and also its leading scorer. In 1961, the Toulouse FC him under contract, but separated from the Foix after only one season in mid-table again. He returned to AS Saint- Étienne and changed for the first time in his pro career in the second division into which the club had just descended. As the winner of the Coupe de France, the ASSE France represented in the European Cup Winners' Cup , retired in the second round, however, against 1 FC Nuremberg. Jacques Foix had nevertheless still contributed eight goals. And twelve months later ranked the club in the final table of the top division at the first place, again with nine Foix - goals. This title was decided by the now 33 -year-old to end his career. He then returned to his native France, southwest, where he initially worked in his father's insurance agency office in Mont -de- Marsan, and it took over later. Already in the spring of 1949 won Jacques Foix with the A- youth national team in the Netherlands for the second time discharged European Junior Championship by a 4-1 playoff victory against the hosts. Between December 1953 and March 1956, he played seven A- international matches, he scored three goals. His most notable performance was obtained with the 3:1 friendly in October 1954 against the newly crowned world champions Germany : Foix sat with kickoff at first only on the Reserve Bank in Hanover Lower Saxony Stadium; after half an hour Larbi Ben Barek injured , and just six minutes later succeeded the substitute for him attacker the opening goal, the Jean Vincent left two minutes later follow it 2-0. After the break, in turn, increased Foix after a pass from Raymond Kopa 3-0. The next day, L' Équipe headlined "Avec Foix et courage" (a pun that translates in the same sounding spelling Avec foi et courage "with conviction and courage" means). His last international match (against Austria) ended with a 3-1 win. In the previous World Cup finals in Switzerland Jacques Foix had not been appointed to the French squad despite a hit in the qualifier against Luxembourg. And four years later, he was again not to the circle of those who contested the World Cup in Sweden: the Centre Forward position in the Bleus was occupied particularly by René Bliard and Just Fontaine.
