What is his name ? Kanté. N’Golo, N’Golo Kanté. This Wednesday evening, Chelsea had an appointment with history. The Blues hosted Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League semi-final second leg. With their draw in Madrid in the first leg (1-1), Thomas Tuchel’s men were virtually qualified at kickoff. But they decided to choose their fate.
With a compact block and a very efficient collective balance, the English won without any real challenge (2-0). The two goalscorers of the meeting are Timo Werner and Mason Mount, with two goals recorded in each half. But what must be emphasized both on Wednesday night’s match and on the whole of the double-confrontation is the stratospheric performance of N’Golo Kanté.
Étienne Didot supercharged
The French midfielder, back in favor since the arrival on the bench of Thomas Tuchel last January, was XXL in this semi-final. Harassing the ball carrier like never before, he is notably at the origin of the first and second goal by recovering the ball very high and being on the penultimate pass. He ran more than 11 kilometers (11.38). It is the second most popular element.
N’Golo Kanté ….

He created three clear chances, which made him the most creative player in the game and even almost had the right to a guard of honor at the exit of the stadium as everyone found him dazzling. His talent has even crossed the English borders since Etienne Didot, former midfielder of Rennes, notably cracked a tweet: ” N’Golo Kanté …. Defensively. Offensively. Decisive. STATE OF MIND. After each his own tastes, but between stars who like to make small bridges and him, there is no photo “. So bodes well for the Euro and for Didier Deschamps.
