Kante named in EA Team of the Year

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been voted into the EA Sports FIFA Team of the Year.

It’s the latest in a long line of personal achievements for the 26-year-old, who only last month was named French Player of the Year for 2017 by France Football magazine, having picked up both the PFA and FWA Player of the Year prizes at the end of last season.

Voting for the Team of the Year was carried out between a combination of athletes, members of the media and EA SPORTS FIFA community members.

Kante enjoyed a wonderful maiden campaign at Stamford Bridge during 2016/17, playing a pivotal role as we secured the Premier League title, and the Frenchman has been a key part of the team once again this season, making 26 appearances so far.
