Eden Hazard has hailed N’Golo Kante as the best defensive midfielder in the world and believes Belgium will have a tough time beating France in their World Cup semi-final if Kante is at his best.
Hazard will face Kante at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday night when Belgium face France with a place in the final at stake.
“I play all year with Kante,” Hazard told beIN Sports.
“He is the best in the world in his position. When he is at his best, you have a 95 per cent chance to win the game.”
