There were scenes of celebration outside Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night after Chelsea reached the Champions League semi-final.
N’Golo Kante was one of the Blues’ star performers against Real Madrid, putting in a typically lung-busting display to help secure a 2-0 victory.
The 30-year-old played a key part in the first goal, surging forward before playing in Kai Havertz, whose delicately chipped shot bounced off the crossbar for Timo Werner to head home.
Kante then also had a role in the winner, teeing up Christian Pulisic, whose cut-back was finished by Mason Mount.
The unassuming Frenchman has always been popular due to his modesty, which was on display once again as he drove out of Stamford Bridge in a white Mini Cooper, only to be mobbed by Blues fans.
