REVEALED: Why Chelsea midfielder Kante hooked in World Cup final

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante went into the World Cup final carrying an illness.

Kante was hooked after 55 minutes in the World Cup final after having a poor game. The 27-year-old was instrumental in France winning the tournament, putting in a series of brilliant performances.

But his usually impressive standards dropped at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday.

Le Parisien says the defensive midfielder was suffering from gastroenteritis on the day.
