N’Golo Kante’s reacts to Chelsea Champions League victory (photo, video)

It was a typically modest moment that sums up the France international, who’s now a World Cup, Premier League and Champions League winner – but who never looks to own the limelight, despite his match-winning displays.

This is a player who left Stamford Bridge in a Mini Cooper after he helped get Chelsea to this final by defeating Real Madrid. Just one of numerous examples of Kante’s self-effacing nature.

The box-to-box midfielder was the best player on the pitch on Saturday night in Porto, but he was the most reserved when finally faced with one of the few major trophies he’d never won before.

At least his family showed the full extent of their emotions when his mum came on the pitch to embrace Kante in a warm hug in the aftermath of the game.

We also know his Chelsea colleagues were keen to show their appreciation of him, as Kante was carried around the pitch at full-time.

Kai Havertz netted the game’s only goal, rounding Ederson to score after City’s defence left him in acres of space.

But it was Kante’s individual display that will live long in the memory, despite his lack of desire to draw attention to himself when it comes to the game’s silverware and post-match glory.
