Just like he used to, N’Golo Kante was all over the field as France beat Germany 1-0 in their opening game of the Euro 2020 tournament.
Moreover, the scoreline could have been much worse for Germany had the French attackers remained onside during the second half.
Although Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba will take the limelight for this game, Kante had a decent and wonderful night himself.
The midfielder did not let the opponents even get close to the ball on many occasions and was dominant on all fronts – here are his best stats from the game:
45 accurate passes (88.2% passing success rate)
3/3 long balls
3/8 ground duels won
Meanwhile, the Ballon d’Or candidate will have another chance to shine in France’s next game against Hungary on June 19.
