Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and the rest of the Chelsea’s French contingent Olivier Giroud and Kurt Zouma recently linked up with France squad as the Les Bleus prepare for the European Championship.

Kante has been accused by his Chelsea teammates for coming late to training, and was late this time to the France squad.

A very funny conversation ensued between Kante and France boss Didier Deschamps upon his arrival.

Deschamps said: “Why were you late?” and Kante responded: “Sorry, the train was delayed,” with a smile on his face.

The French boss then gave a hilarious response: “Just run, you are faster than the train.”

Kante who is a World Cup winner will be aiming to win the Euros this time around.

France are back in action on Tuesday when they face Bulgaria, ahead of starting their Euro 2021 campaign against Germany one week later, having been placed in a very difficult group, which also includes Hungary and Portugal.
