Deschamps Shares Worrying News About Mbappe’s Nose Injury

France’s coach, Didier Deschamps, has shared concerning news about Kylian Mbappe, the team’s captain, who suffered a broken nose during France’s 1-0 win over Austria in their opening match of Euro 2024.

The injury occurred late in the game in Düsseldorf when Mbappe collided with Austria’s Kevin Danso, leading to a severe injury.

Mbappe, 25, was clearly in pain and required on-field treatment as blood flowed from his nose.

Despite efforts to substitute him with Olivier Giroud, the match resumed before the substitution could be completed, resulting in Mbappe briefly re-entering the field without permission and receiving a yellow card. He was then substituted.

Philippe Diallo, president of the French Football Federation, stated that Mbappe does not need surgery, but the full extent of his injury is still unknown.

In the post-match press conference, Deschamps voiced his concerns, saying, “He’s not in good shape. His nose was badly struck. We need to examine it, but it seems quite serious, which is very unfortunate for us.”

The medical team continues to evaluate Mbappe’s condition, and Deschamps could not give a clear prognosis. “I saw him on the massage table. He didn’t get off lightly. It’s still under review, and I cannot provide a precise answer at this stage,” he added.

The former PSG forward, who has scored 47 goals in 80 appearances for France, was instrumental in France’s only goal of the match, as his cross led to an own goal by Austria’s Max Wober.

France faces a difficult task against the Netherlands, and the uncertainty surrounding Mbappe’s injury adds to the challenge.

Deschamps was non-committal about Mbappe’s availability for France’s next game against the Netherlands on Friday, stating, “I’m not going to speculate, but the French team with Kylian will always be stronger. If the news isn’t positive, we will have to fight without him.”
