N’Golo Kanté is a World Cup champion. The two-time Premier League title winner and former PFA Player of the Year proved once again why he’s the undisputed best defensive midfielder on the planet on the biggest stage possible.
After France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final, celebrations by the team lasted long into the night and featured many tributes to their dynamic midfielder. They sang his name. They sang his name all night long. In the dressing room after the match:

The French song apparently is and ode to him putting an end to Leo Messi’s World Cup run.
“N’Golo Kanté, N’Golo Kanté,

What a day for the Chelsea midfielder and one he more than deserves. As the song says, it couldn’t have happened for a nicer guy.
