WATCH: Kante shoulder barge against Germany goes viral

New, comments

David slays Goliath in the Nations League

In the bleu corner we have N’Golo Kanté, weighing-in at 5’6″ (1.70m) and 150 lbs (68 kg).

In the weiss corner we have Stuttgart striker Timo Werner, who enters the arena at 5’11″ (1.80m) and 167 lbs(76kg).

What those stats don’t capture is the hidden mass of Kanté’s great, big heart.

Maybe that’s what caught Werner by surprise when Chelsea’s diminutive midfielder came in for a challenge in France’s come-from-behind 2-1 win over Germany in Tuesday night’s Nations League clash at Stade de France.

What happened next has since gone viral (and maybe left Werner a tad embarrassed?).

It’s pretty funny how easily Kanté is able to shove the Werner aside and claim the ball. And also something about pizza?

Safe to say our prize player will be coming back to his parent club in fine form

We’re going to ignore reports that overall, he didn’t have such a great game. After all, why ruin a good story?
