Joy for ex Leicester star Kante as France win World Cup

Former Leicester star N’Golo Kante added a World Cup to his already glittering trophy cabinet as Les Bleus repeated their 1998 triumph with a 4-2 win over underdogs Croatia in the final. The French won through goals from Griezmann, Pogba and Mbappe, thus handing their manager Didier Deschamps a rare World Cup double (manager and player)

Kante had been a rock for the French during the tournament, but seemed a little off his best in the final, and was replaced early in the second half by Steven N’Zonzi, a move that helped the French gain control of the game.

Leicester’s Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy had to settle for fourth place as England were beaten 2-0 by Belgium in their third place playoff.
