N'Golo Kante sends message to board over PSG transfer

Paul Pogba with French squad

The incredible act of humility had football fans around the world appreciating the modesty of N'Golo Kante, even though he had just won a World Cup. Led by Pogba, the team sang praises for the "unsung hero".

Fast forward four-years, he's a cornerstone in the France side that is the overwhelming favourite to win the competition, as well as having two Premier League titles to his name.

"His quality of pass is excellent and he can break the lines".

They face Croatia in the final of this year's edition of the championship, and the former Leicester City midfielder is expected to play a key role in that game.

He is now with the French national team in Russian Federation, preparing to play in the World Cup final on Sunday against Croatia. In terms of recovery, he reads the game incredibly and captures impossible balls.

The player could have literally soiled himself during the world's most watched event, not to mention the pain he might have endured as he still ran tirelessly along the ground - albeit visibly bereft of that extra step. He intercepts balls that are impossible.

"He's not only essential for the balance of the team, but he helps his team-mates".

"Ohh N'Golo Kanté, ohh N'Golo Kanté".

Indeed, he pointed to Kante's absence from the Euro 2016 final as a decisive factor in that clash, which France lost 1-0 to Portugal on home soil after extra-time.

Renowned for his shy nature, N'Golo Kante has failed disastrously in his attempts to stay out the headlines. "I think that what he did that day was his biggest error as a manager, which all the respect I have for that great coach".
