N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud are WORLD CHAMPIONS! They’ve done it!
Heading into the competition, Les Bleus were considered one of the favourites to lift the trophy. After a slow start, they soon exploded into life – and they’ve gone all the way.
Kante was influential for France throughout the tournament, but was hauled off in the 54th minute of the final. He was struggling to keep track of the interchanging Croatian midfield.
Giroud did not score a single goal in Russia, despite featuring throughout. He won’t mind, though, he’s got his hands on a winners’ medal.
The pair will return to Chelsea training after a short break. They’ll no doubt be boasting to their teammates of their new title of champions of the world.
A massive congratulations to Kante and Giroud. It doesn’t get any better of this in football. Let’s hope the pair taste more success in a Chelsea shirt this coming season.
