Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante seems to have formed a formidable partnership with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, in the heart of midfield for France.

Kante and Pogba are unbeaten in 26 games they’ve played together for France, and they continued their fine form together, with a 1-0 win against Portugal.

Kante has now admitted that he loves to play alongside Pogba when playing for France.

“Yes it is true, with Paul it has been a little while he’s been injured, a little while since I played with him,” Kante told TF1.

“We all remember the World Cup, that whole adventure we did together, the qualifications stage and the competition, and it is a pleasure again to be playing with Paul in the national team.

“Against Portugal we had a good game and we are all satisfied with our performance.”

Kante then revealed that it’s not just about him and Pogba, but the entire team as well.

“I think it is not that simple,” said Kante.

“We are all together, it is not just Kante and Pogba, but the whole team.

“We are happy that we have never lost when we have started together, I hope that will continue for as long as possible, but these are victories and draws for whole team, not just us two.”
