Eden Hazard has heaped praises on France midfielder and Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kante ahead of their semifinal clash in the World Cup.

Hazard and Kante will face each other as their teams vie for a spot in the finals of the World Cup in Russia.

Both players have been remarkable for the club Chelsea but failed to help the Stamford Bridge outfit to qualify for the Champions League after finishing out of the top four in the Premier League.

"To play with N'Golo every day, in his position, he's the best in the world, without a doubt," said Hazard. "It will be a complicated match but we are ready. Maybe the few games where he is less good, if he is less well (laughs), they risk losing the game. We will make sure he gets the least amount of possession possible.

"With the France team, we cannot say that there is only one key, that's really what stands out. For me, it's the collective of the team. After, of course, N'Golo at the top, you have a 95% chance of winning the match, and we can see it with Chelsea.”
