Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante: An amazing three years

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante admits he's amazed to be in the World Cup final with France.

In 2015, N'Golo Kante was playing in the French top flight with Caen, a club he had helped to get promotion from Ligue 2 the previous season.

A year later, he lifted the Premier League title with Leicester and reached the Euro 2016 final with France.

In 2017, Kante was a Premier League winner again with Chelsea, and also a Ballon D'Or nominee.

This year, he has already added an FA Cup winner's medal to his growing haul, and on Sunday in Moscow he could get a World Cup one, too.

“In these few years, many amazing things have happened to me in football and I really appreciate that," said Kante, with typical understatement. “Now it's the World Cup and I really hope we can achieve something together at this stage."
