Kante Suffers Injury while playing for France against Iceland

N'Golo Kante was withdrawn from the France team to play Iceland because of injury prior to kick-off in Reykjavik, but head coach Didier Deschamps said the injury was not severe.

The Chelsea midfielder had been named in the starting XI and was all set to play in the Euro 2020 qualifying match before suffering a muscle strain.
It meant Tottenham's Moussa Sissoko came into Didier Deschamps' line-up for the Group H fixture, which France won 1-0.

"He felt a pain in his adductor muscle," Deschamps said after the game.

"He had a feeling where he didn't feel comfortable to play. I made the decision [to remove him from the team], because maybe it could get worse.
"I knew Moussa would be ready.

"I do not think it's too serious for [Kante], but I do not have an answer [to whether he'll play against Turkey on Tuesday] tonight."
