Kante was too shy to lift the world cup - Giroud

Olivier Giroud has revealed that N'Golo Kante was too shy to grab hold of the World Cup after winning it with France last month.

The Chelsea team-mates discussed their World Cup success on the club's official Facebook page having both played a starring role for Didier Deschamps' side.

Kante was France's midfield linchpin and Giroud was the focal point of the attack, despite not registering a shot on target in the tournament.

'Obviously we knew that Hugo (captain Lloris) would be the first one to touch it,' said Giroud after he was asked about getting his hands on the World Cup.

'I have to say I have been clever because I took the good position to touch it.'

The interviewer then asks Kante when he got to touch the World Cup.

'I was waiting my turn,' he said, before Giroud interrupted.

'He is so shy so he didn't want to say "give it to me", so he had to wait.

'Sometimes people came in front of him.

'At the end of the day someone took it and gave it to him.'

Giroud, 31, also revealed he has fulfilled a lifelong ambition by winning the World Cup. 'I was 11 years old when France won their first World Cup and I was so excited,' he said. 'I said to my friends "one day I will win it".'
