Criticizing France coach Didier Deschamps on Kante's injury, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said, "We didn't get him back until after the second game and he's not fit for Saturday. After the first game when he pulled out, he then had a fitness test the day before the second game, it was clear that he couldn't play. He then sat on the bench on the evening of the game, so that's not communication."
