Ian Wright compares Leeds star to N’Golo Kante following his World Cup form
Leeds’ captain is one of the key figures of the USA national team which played a goalless draw against Gareth Southgate’s men on the second matchday of the World Cup in Qatar.
The 23-year-old was far and away one of the best players on the pitch: 100% tackles and 100% aerial duels won, 87% pass accuracy, 3 ground duels won & 2 clearances. With his mobility, intensity and pass volume, Adams was almost everywhere in the midfield against the Three Lions.
“People are going to say ‘you’re comparing him to Kante’, I’m not. I haven’t seen somebody that good at what he’s doing for a long time in that position – since that Kante vibe. If there’s something over there, he’s over there snuffing it out. He’s like how Kante was. He’s like a magnet to the ball where the problems are going to come.
