The deadlock has finally been broken in tonight’s UEFA Nations League tie between Portugal and France, with N’Golo Kante popping up to fire Les Blues into the lead.
In the 52nd minute of the encounter, Antoine Griezmann slipped the ball into Adrien Rabiot with a clever pass, the Juventus midfielder then drilled a shot towards goal.
Wolves keeper Rui Patricio couldn’t control the ball, when it spilled out, N’Golo Kante showed his fast reactions to tap the ball into the back of the net.
It’s been a good few days for Chelsea players on international break with Callum Hudson-Odoi’s and Hakim Ziyech’s exploits, as well as Timo Werner bagging a brace tonight, here’s his first for Germany.
