Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante is set to miss the 2022 World Cup due to a recurring hamstring injury.
The Frenchman first picked up the injury in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham on August 14th and has missed all ten of Chelsea’s games since.
It looked as if the 31-year was all set to make a return to action until last week, when the injury began to hamper him once again, extending his layoff.
Kante will miss the World Cup; his absence will be a massive loss to his national team.
Graham Potter was not too happy when asked about his midfielder’s situation during his press conference today, saying: “It’s a setback; it’s not good news. He’s due to see a consultant this weekend.”
