Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante risked a long journey back from France duty as he joined Spanish team-mates following friendly defeat

• N’Golo Kante faced off with Chelsea team-mate Pedro as France took on Spain
• The Spanish stars were celebrating after a 2-0 friendly victory in Paris
• Fellow Blues’ colleagues Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta were unused subs
• The quartet united to travel back to London ahead of the Premier League return

They may have been on opposing sides on Tuesday night but Chelsea stars N’Golo Kante, Diego Costa, Pedro and Cesar Azpilicueta put international rivalries to one side as they travelled back to London together.

Kante and Pedro were the only Blues players to get game-time at the Stade de France as Spain beat their hosts 2-0, thanks in part to the interjection of the video officials.

Unused substitute Costa played and scored in the win over Israel but Azpilicueta watched both games from the bench without making an appearance. Kante got through 180 minutes for France over the international break – beating Luxembourg before losing to the 2010 world champions.

France striker Antoine Griezmann had a goal ruled out for offside after use of the video while Gerard Deulofeu’s effort was allowed to stand after he had been flagged. David Silva had earlier opened the scoring.

The Chelsea quartet were all smiles as they reunited to travel back to London on Tuesday night. They will be back on the same side when they return to Cobham to prepare for Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Kante has been at the forefront of PFA Player of the Season discussions with his impressive displays helping Chelsea to a 10-point lead in the Premier League.

However, he insists that he is not getting carried away by the praise coming his way and told Canal+: ‘It’s always nice to hear nice things about yourself, but you have to step back, there’s still a lot of work.

‘When I’m in France, I see the careers and the prize list.

‘Of my team-mates, I think that I have not done anything in football, and there is no reason to take it for someone else.’
