N'Golo Kante Turns Up At France's Training Base Six Hours Early

N'Golo Kante has turned up at France's training base SIX hours early.

The diminutive midfielder arrived at Clairefontaine at 6:30 am this morning, to report for international duty.

French publication L'Equipe claim Kante decided to make sure he was not late and appeared on the site six hours before he was supposed to be there.

Kante only finished playing his Premier League match for Chelsea at Goodison Park around 6:30 pm on Sunday. 12 hours later, he's reported for France. No messing.

That's a very impressive effort considering he's the most fined player at Chelsea for being late.

His club colleagues Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek wasted no time in responding when asked who picks up the most fines.

"N'Golo!" Loftus-Cheek told Soccer AM. "Yeah, N'Golo! You wouldn't expect it. He's always late. Always," said Hudson-Odoi.

Loftus-Cheek added: "He's not super late. Normally you get places earlier, he's usually one or two minutes late, or just on time!

"He comes in and smiles and everyone is like: 'Yeah we forgive you'."
