N'Golo Kante Is Set To Miss 2022 World Cup With France Over Injury.

 N'Golo Kante, is  reportedlyexpected to miss the 2022 FIFA World Cup due to a hamstring injury that has kept him out for much of the year.

The 31-year-old French star has missed much of the season due to a hamstring injury he sustained in the 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur back in August. He had been working carefully toward regaining full fitness but lately experienced an injury recurrence during training.

Earlier this week, Chelsea head coach Graham Potter revealed that N’Golo Kanté had suffered a setback in his attempt to return from his latest hamstring injury, and according to a report yesterday from L’Equipe, that “relapse” will keep the midfielder out for another 4-5 games at least.

It is unlikely that the midfielder will make a full recovery in time for the World Cup in Qatar which begins this November, the report added.

It is a serious setback for Didier Deschamps and the France side, especially in light of the lingering question of Paul Pogba's fitness.

It's possible that France won't have their two starting midfielders from the 2018 victory in the tournament.

Kante had hoped the injury would just keep him out for a few weeks before the World Cup, but it now seems more serious.

Graham Potter and Chelsea will be concerned about Kante's injury as well because of the busy schedule they have up to November 13, when the Premier League takes a break for the World Cup.
