N'Golo Kante Just Smiles Throughout France Initiation Song As Teammates Go Wild
N'Golo Kante is the gift that keeps on giving.
He is one of the most humble, down to earth footballers you'll ever come across. I mean, just look at this smile. How can you not love this guy?!

Anyway, enough of me declaring my love for Kante, the World Cup winning midfielder is back with his international teammates this week as France prepare to face Germany in Munich.
On Tuesday evening, the squad gathered together to celebrate the initiation of goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte, who had to sing a song on his arrival.
Lecomte stood on a platform and tried blasting out a tune as all of his teammate waved napkins above their heads. Well, not ALL of his teammates.
The Chelsea midfielder played a pivotal and unsung role in France's World Cup success this summer.
He made more tackles and interceptions than any other player in the tournament, not to mention the fact that he unlocked the talents of another main man, Paul Pogba.
Despite all of his success, Kante remains the humble and shy person we all know and love. The fact that Steven N'Zonzi had to encourage France teammates to let him actually hold the trophy because he didn't want to impose sums up the man himself.
If you haven't seen the footage yet, take a low at the below. What a man.
In the aftermath of the celebrations, a team picture involving all of the France squad has gone viral.
At first many questioned why Kante wasn't actually included in the photo, but he was eventually spotted hiding behind teammate Antoine Griezmann. It just sums up the man. He's not bothered about being in the spotlight.
He does his thing on the pitch and that's that
Kanté, the guys who's 5'6 is standing in the back. The guy who did much for France doesn't want to be in the "spotlight". Ahh I love Kanté, what a humble boy.:heart_eyes: pic.twitter.com/pNJlsj9w49- Lisa :flag_se: (@BarcaLisa10) July 16, 2018
