France midfielder, N’Zonzi asked team-mates to let the midfielder pose with the trophy as the jubilant French team celebrated in the Moscow rain, according to reports.
Kante, was impressive in Russia during Didier Deschamps’ side’s march to the final.
But he had a muted evening at the Luzhniki Stadium, being swamped by Croatia’s midfielders.
And after he picked up a yellow card, Deschamps hauled him off after 55 minutes for N’Zonzi before Les Bleus went on to win 4-2.
The Chelsea man, who won league titles with Leicester and the Blues in consecutive seasons, is well known for being shy and reserved.
