Deschamps’ surprise gift to N’Golo Kanté

Zapping Onze Mondial EXCLUDED: Randal Kolo Muani’s “Little Brother” interview!

It was a boss’ match that N’Golo Kanté delivered last night to guide the France team against Austria. Absolutely everywhere on the pitch, the midfielder has completely forgotten his exile in Saudi Arabia, which has not prevented him from maintaining himself at the highest level. Enough to delight a certain Didier Deschamps. “From the moment I was certain that he had recovered all his athletic abilities. He has tactical intelligence, the ability to recover balls, to project himself. He was radiant,” enthused the Blues coach.

Kanté captain for the first time

While Kanté was crowned man of the match, Didier Deschamps even gave him a nice honor in the final minutes. Indeed, at the time of Kylian Mbappé’s exit due to injury, and while Giroud or even Hernandez or Maignan were on the pitch, it was N’Golo Kanté who inherited the armband. A great first in Blue and obviously a great honor. “It’s the first time, I didn’t expect it, but it was a game. It’s a pleasure, it’s an honor, it was for a few moments, but it represents a lot and it’s a source of pride,” Kanté rejoiced to the press.
