N'Golo Kante Is One Of Four Players To Win The Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup And World Cup

N'Golo Kante has become just the fourth player in history to win the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup and World Cup.


Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners over Palmeiras in Abu Dhabi to become world champions for the first time in their history.

It's yet another trophy for the Blues and another for Kante, who is quietly becoming one of the modern game's most decorated players.

He was part of Leicester City's historic Premier League winning squad in 2015/2016, before joining Chelsea and winning it for a second time one year later.

Kante was then part of Didier Deschamps' France team who won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Last year saw the 30-year-old play a vital role in Champions League glory and Saturday's Club World Cup triumph completes the set.

The midfielder is officially part of an exclusive club, but who else has won the four top honours in world football?

Thierry Henry was the first man to achieve the feat, with his World Cup win coming in 1998 and first Premier League title coming in 2002.

It wasn't until his time with Barcelona he managed to win the Champions League and Club World Cup however, with both honours coming in 2009.

Gerard Pique is next up after winning the Premier League and Champions League as a youngster with Manchester United in 2008.

He'd go on to add three more Champions League medals and three Club World Cup wins to his cabinet as well as the World Cup with Spain in 2010.

The final player is Pedro, who won the same trophies with Barcelona and Spain as Pique, but his Premier League title in the same Chelsea team as Kante.

It was a dogged performance from Thomas Tuchel's men against a Palmeiras side who were desperate to win the competition.

Kai Havertz's penalty in the second half of extra time secured victory after Raphael Veiga cancelled out Romelu Lukaku's header.

Cesar Azpilicueta looked ready to take the penalty before passing the ball to Havertz at the last second.

The Chelsea captain explained at full-time: "It was a tactic because I knew how they are, I knew they were coming for the penalty taker, so I took the ball.

"Kai knew that he was going to shoot, so it was to release the pressure from him. It was a decisive moment and Kai is one of the best penalty takers.

"I waited and listened to everything their players told me, and I think it worked, which is the most important thing."
