Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante continued his impressive World Cup on Saturday, helping France progress to the quarter-finals with a 4-3 win over Argentina.
It was a modern classic of a game, with both sides giving everything to progress to the next stage. France though fully deserved their victory and Kante was at the heart of the action.
His tireless performances in midfield over the last couple of years for club and country mean he is now regarded as one of the best in the world in his position and Chelsea fans can’t get enough of him.
He’s played every minute of every match for France so far this summer and has been one of their stand-out performers, showing that he isn’t just defensively minded as per his reputation, but can play a bit too with the ball at his feet.
Chelsea supporters can’t wait to see him in action again next term and some believe that a new manager can get even better performances out of him.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the player after his Saturday performance…

People that say N’Golo Kante is just a defensive midfielder have clearly never seen him play. He’s actually got so much to his game.
Best in the world in his position. #CFC

One of Antonio Conte’s best decisions at Chelsea, was getting Ngolo Kanté.

Incredible how N’golo Kante manages to put on a 9/10 performance every single game.
