N'Golo Kante: Patient bird waiting for honours

France and Chelsea play maker N'Golo Kante: would add another accolade to his ever busting honours cabinet when he appears in his first world cup finals on Sunday.
In four years, he's gone from Ligue 2 to win two EPL titles and an FA Cup, play in a Euros final and reach Russia2018 World Cup Final showpiece. What a difference three years make!
In 2015, N’Golo Kante was playing in the French top flight with Caen, a club he had helped to get promotion from Ligue 2 the previous season.

A year later, he lifted the Premier League title with Leicester and reached the Euro 2016 final with France.

In 2017, Kante was a Premier League winner again with Chelsea, and also a Ballon D’Or nominee.

This year, he has already added an FA Cup winner’s medal to his growing haul, and on Sunday in Moscow he could get a World Cup one, too.

OPTA stats have revealed Kante has so far made 48 ball recoveries at this World Cup — more than any other outfield player.

This same man was rejected by clubs earlier in his career, he has had it hard in life; but he didn't quit!

He has just been offered £200,000 per week deal by ChelseaFC to fend off interest from top football clubs across Europe.
