Pogba Praises ‘Inhuman’ Kante


French midfielder, Paul Pogba, has praised compatriot, N’Golo Kante, for his energetic dynamism to cover the entire length of a football field.

The Chelsea midfielder had a second impressive display in France’s 1-0 win against Peru at the World Cup on Thursday.

The 27-year-old had 88 percent accurate passes, won seven duels, four successful tackles, four interceptions, three clearances, three long passes and one key through pass, as the French book a second round qualification.

The team had earlier secured a 2-1 victory over Australia in their first game in Group C.

Pogba said Kante’s ability to run all day makes him inhuman.

“A player like N’Golo facilitates you in a game. In fact, he is everywhere. Sometimes, I don’t go back in defense and I know he is there. He has 15 lungs, he helps the team so much,” he said.
