Leicester City star N’golo Kante has revealed he was surprised to get called up to the France squad.
The French midfielder has been exceptional for Leicester, helping them to the top of the log.
And he has been rewarded with a call up to the France squad for the friendlies against Russia and Netherlands.
“The rise has been quick. I’ve seen new experiences and new challenges every year. I take them step by step,” he said to the official website of the French Football Federation (FFF).
“I will give my best and then we’ll see what happens. When I saw my name on the list, it was gratifying. I couldn’t see it coming. I was happy.
“I thought mainly of my journey. Today I’ve reached that level, and it’s really satisfying.”
