After picking up a knock against Ukraine, N’golo Kante will travel back to Stamford Bridge early to undergo treatment.

A statement on the French Football Federation website reads: "N'Golo Kante will not take part in the next two matches of the French team on Sunday in Kazakhstan and three days later in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

"The Chelsea midfielder felt a pain in the hamstrings of the left thigh at the very end of the match against Ukraine on Wednesday at the Stade de France. He had clinical and radiological examinations on Thursday, which revealed a small lesion.

"In consultation with Doctor Franck Le Gall, national coach Didier Deschamps has decided to put N'Golo Kanté back at the disposal of his club tomorrow.

"N'Golo Kante will not be replaced. It is therefore a group of twenty-five players who will fly to Kazakhstan tomorrow morning."

Crucial to Chelsea’s chances of a Champions League promotion, Thomas Tuchel hopes able to have the midfielder for more matches this season.
