The Frenchman has been away from the spotlight in the last two years due to a hamstring injury he suffered during his final season at Stamford Bridge and his eventual move to Saudi Arabia.

The versatile midfielder currently plays for Al-Ittihad alongside another legendary France team-mate in Karim Benzema.

His change in circumstances have also seen him being omitted from his national team in the last two years with his last game taking place against Denmark at home in the Nations League back in 2022.

However, France manager Deschamps hasn’t forgotten Kante and included him to his 25-man squad ahead of the summer’s tournament in Germany.

The Al-Ittihad star will be joining some more Premier League stars, like West Ham’s Alphonse Areola, Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate and Arsenal‘s William Saliba.

Kante will get the chance to add to his 53 caps, which include two goals.

The ex-Caen star will also look to complete the trifecta after already winning the 2018 World Cup and the 2021 Nations League title.

Kante has also won every available silverware on club level starting with Leicester’s sensational Premier League triumph in 2016.

The France international was among the players that led the Foxes to the greatest underdog story in football history.

Kante then moved to Chelsea the same summer and went on to lift another Prem title in 2017.
