Alarm in the French team for Kylian Mbappé. The brand new signing of Real Madrid left the field of play in the 87th minute of the match after a strong impact against the shoulder of Kevin Danso, central defender of the Swiss team. In the final minutes of the match, the captain of the French team was looking for a lateral cross when he collided with the Austrian center back. When he tried to connect the header, Mbappé ended up hitting his rival’s shoulder with his nose. The striker fell to the ground and quickly Patrick Pentz, goalkeeper of the team coached by Ralf Rangnick, called for medical assistance.

More information

Didier Deschamps, France’s national coach, has confirmed the worst omens regarding Kylian Mbappé’s health. The brand new signing of Real Madrid has a broken nose. The newspaper L’Equipe It also reports that the player has been taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital where he will undergo surgery tonight. Of course his availability for the next games is unknown.

“He’s not feeling well, he’s in bad shape. He was in the hands of the medical staff. I can’t say more. His nose is broken, that’s for sure. He seems complicated, this is obviously the bad thing about tonight for us. I saw him lying on the massage table,” the French coach told the press. “With Kylian, the French team is always stronger. If the news does not go in that direction, we will fight without him. Kylian is Kylian. Whatever team he is in, the team is stronger,” added the coach, concerned about the injury of the new Real Madrid player.

The first images set off alarms in the concentration of Les Bleus. The photographs of the moment in which the French team’s doctors treated their player did not invite optimism. The player, bleeding, with a swollen nose and apparently displaced nasal septum, left the field of play almost immediately. He made a move to return to the grass, but it was only to sit on the green to speed up the substitutions. Now it remains to be seen the official medical report of the Frenchman’s injury.

Scare with Antoine Griezmann

France, which achieved victory in its debut against Austria (0-1) with an own goal from Wöber, has survived an eventful match in the Esprit Arena from Dusseldorf. Before Kylian Mbappé’s forced substitution at the end of the match, the one who gave the scare was Antoine Griezman. The Atlético de Madrid forward opened a gap in his forehead after colliding with one of the stadium’s advertisements precisely in a dispute with Wöber. The second half had barely begun when the Frenchman had to be treated by medical services. Griezmann did return to the game again, although he did so with a cumbersome bandage on his head. Finally, he was replaced by Deschamps in the same window that the coach used to replace Kylian Mbappé.
