Paul Pogba lavished praise on N’Golo Kante following the midfielder’s brilliant performance for France in the 1-0 win over Peru on Thursday.

Both Pogba and Kante featured for the French side as they claimed the three points from their second group game in Russia thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s first-half goal.

Chelsea FC star Kante was partnered alongside Pogba in midfield during the World Cup clash in Russia and the pair helped to guide their team to victory.

And Manchester United midfielder Pogba was particularly impressed by Kante’s tireless performance as Didier Deschamps’ side claimed the three points to take a step closer towards the knockout phase.

Pogba was quoted as saying by Metro after the game: “We were all very, very good together,

“With N’Golo it’s easier, he runs everywhere, he has fifteen lungs.

“Football is much easier with players like that. It was a very good team performance. What was important was the win.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC will be looking to make a number of signings this summer as they look to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The west London side finished in fifth place in the table last season and won the FA Cup in Antonio Conte’s second season in charge.

However, the Blues are yet to bring in any new signings this summer as they look to try and break back into the top four next term.
