Chelsea striker Gael Kakuta is winning great praise in France with the nation's U19 European Championship team.

Kakuta was outstanding in their 4-1 victory over Holland and was watched by new France coach Laurent Blanc.

"Frankly, I did not know he was there," said Kakuta. "Of course, it's nice that he came, but for us the most important thing is to win this Euro. That's what we're here for! And then we must also prepare ourselves for the World Championships scheduled next year.

"I was born in France, playing for the Blues, I've always dreamed about."
