Kylian Mbappe injured in training, suffers ankle injury

France are sweating on the fitness of star forward Kylian Mbappe after the PSG striker was injured in training after a tackle from Adil Rami. The “ramifications” (apologies for the pun), could be huge, with Les Bleus set to open their World Cup campaign four days from now against the Socceroos.

Mbappe has been a key player for France and scored the only goal in their last match- a 1-1 draw against the United States in Lyon.

Rami was chosen for the French squad because Laurent Koscielny could not make it due to injury, leaving Deschamps requiring an experienced right footed defender amidst the prevalence of left footers in the squad.
