YOUR CLUB ARE about to miraculously win a Premier League title. Many have claimed that you are one of the biggest reasons for the miracle having taken place.

Life is good.

But then it gets better.

Your country calls you up for the very first time. You make your international debut.

But then it gets even better.

You’re handed your first start for your country in the capital city. In front of all those fans, you manage to score on your debut too.

Oh, and one more thing – that all happens on your birthday.

As days go, Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante had a pretty special Tuesday.

And by the look on his face, he knows it too.

France racked up a 4-2 win over Russia with another birthday boy – Dimitri Payet – also on the mark along with Andre-Pierre Gignac and  Kingsley Coman.
