N’Golo Kante might have won the World Cup with France, but the 28-year-old is yet to taste Champions League glory.

The World Cup winner hasn’t gone beyond the second round of the Champions League with Chelsea, but didn’t push to leave the club.

Following Chelsea’s qualification to the Champions League knockout stage, Kante has now revealed that Chelsea are targeting to do well in the Champions League this season.

“It was always our target to do well in the Champions League,” he said. “We knew that today was a big game for us and it would have a big influence on the rest of our season so to continue in this competition is a big target for us.

“For the young players, for all the team and for the club, to play against the big teams and try our best is a big chance for us. We need to believe that we can achieve something great, work for that and do our best.”

Having qualified from Group H as second, Chelsea are expecting a tough draw for the second round, and Blues boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he’s calm ahead of the draw and isn’t scared of meeting the big teams.

Chelsea will find out our last-16 opponents when the draw is made in Nyon on Monday 16 December.
