For over the years now, N’Golo Kante has been an important player for both club and country with the 30-year-old’s tireless effort in the midfield having gone unnoticed.
France national team coach Didier Deschamps has for that reason explained why his star midfielder is irreplaceable for his country.
“The midfielder works in the shadows. He is not given media attention because he is not “decisive” (goal/assist). From time to time, lights get shone on them,” France manager Didier Deschamps told El Pais.
“That is the case for Kante now. He is above all the first player that his teammates pick for their teams in training! And he is the first name that a coach, a national team manager, notes down when he is deciding his starting XI.”

“I would like to see Werner up front,” ex-Germany boss Berty Vogts told Sportsbuzzer. “He can get into important spaces in front of goal with his speed right there, in the center. He can do a lot with his strength one-on-one.”
So far, however, Timo Werner is not appearing to be Joachim Low’s first choice, with Kai Havertz, Thomas Muller, and Serge Gnabry forming the front three.
