Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann has spoken of his relationship with France teammate N'Golo Kante.

For many, the Chelsea midfielder is the best of his type in the world.

Griezmann said, "He is a very shy guy, very popular with the public and the group.

"We try to push him forward, even if he does not like that too much!"

Kante appeared embarrassed when given a rousing cheer by home fans last night as they celebrated the World Cup triumph after beating Holland.
