Kante is renowned for his modesty and he was too shy to ask to hold the World Cup trophy after the 4-2 win over Croatia in this summer’s final.

But his team-mates ensured that he got the credit he deserved by huddling around him and singing as loud as possible.

The lyrics translated into English read: “N’Golo Kante, pala lalala, he’s short, he’s nice, he stopped Leo Messi, but we all know he’s a cheater, N’Golo Kante.”

He was then lifted into the air by his team-mates as the fans joined in by chanting his name.
