Though born in France, and having represented the nation at various youth levels, including the U21 side with whom he was the captain, Tolisso was also eligible to represent Togo through his paternal lineage. In 2016, Togo manager Claude Le Roy revealed that he would try to convince Tolisso to represent the nation instead of France. Tolisso had previously acknowledged his ties to Togo but was loyal to France, stating that “I was born here and grew up here.” Having previously represented France at various youth levels, Tolisso was called up to the senior squad for the first time to face Luxembourg and Spain in March 2017.
