N’Golo Kante was serenaded with his own song and hoisted into the air as France continued their World Cup celebrations.
Les Bleus took the chance to celebrate in front of their fans following Sunday’s 2-1 win over Holland in the Uefa Nations League.
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.
Each France player was introduced one-by-one before they completed a lap of honour with the trophy.
Paul Pogba entertained the fans doing a hilarious version of the ‘Milly Rock’ dance as he marched back onto the pitch.
And the Manchester United star dabbed as his team-mates lined up in front of him.
Didier Deschamps’ men beat Holland on home soil after Olivier Giroud bagged the winner after Kylian Mbappe’s opener.
Before the match, the France fans cheered as every goal from Russia was displayed on the big screen.
And the supporters formed two giant gold stars to celebrate their second World Cup win to give the squad a heroes welcome for their first game back.
