N’Golo Kante has suffered another injury setback as he pulled out of France’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Iceland due to a muscle problem on Friday night.

Chelsea’s star midfielder experienced issues during the warm-up for the game and so was replaced in the starting line-up by Moussa Sissoko.

Kante has struggled with injuries already this season, missing multiple games dating back to a knee issue suffered late last season.

The problem reoccurred in the Blues’ opening day defeat at Manchester United and his appearances have since been inconsistent.

This latest issue will come as a fresh blow to Frank Lampard, who has also received news of a problem with right-back Reece James this week.

James was forced to withdraw from England’s under-21 squad, though it is hoped his injury is not very serious.

The full extent of both his and Kante’s problems are as yet unknown.
