France coach Deschamps counting on Chelsea midfielder Kante despite injury concern

France coach Didier Deschamps expects Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante to report to Clairefontaine today.

Kante was forced out of Chelsea's 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Saturday with an ankle injury.

However, L'Equipe says Deschamps expects Kante at Clairefontaine today for France's medical team to run their assessment.

The midfielder has been carrying an ankle injury since the start of the season, though went into the game at Anfield clear of any concern.

As such, Deschamps retains hope of Kante facing Bosnia & Herzegovina on Wednesday for their World Cup qualifier.
