France coach Deschamps: Chelsea midfielder Kante the one we all want on our team

France coach Didier Deschamps has paid tribute to Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante ahead of tonight's Euro 2020 clash with Germany.

Deschamps says Kante is the player everyone wants on their team.

He explained, "The midfielder works in the shadows. He is not given media attention. 'From time to time, lights get shown on them, that's the case for Kante now."

The 30-year-old will be looking to add another trophy after winning the Champions League, Europa League and World Cup.

"He is above all the players his team-mates pick for their teams in training.

"And he is the first name that a coach, a national team manager notes down when he is starting eleven."
