WC 2018: Blow for France as Mbappe suffers injury

According to journalists, Mbappe was forced to leave training on Tuesday after picking up a knock to his left ankle after a challenge by Adil Rami.

The 19-year-old was injured in a training ground incident with the severity of his injury now unknown but the forward had to leave the session.

There are no details thus far as to the extent of the injury, but the 19-year-old is expected to undergo tests after his early exit. "And let my friend Rami [know] it was not nasty".

"I'm fine", he said.

She successfully defended her Wimbledon crown the following year and claimed back-to-back US Nationals titles in 1963-64. French Open organizers paid tribute to Bueno with a minute's applause ahead of the women's singles final on Saturday.

Rami turned the camera to Mbappe and shouted from across the treatment room: "Hey, Kylian are you OK?"

Les Bleus continued preparations for the World Cup at the Glebovets Stadium in Istra on Tuesday, but Didier Deschamps's session came to a grinding halt when Mbappe went down in apparent agony.

France has been drawn against Peru, Australia and Denmark in the group stage matches, which will be crucial for their advancement to the knockout stage. They can replace any injured players in the squad up to 24 hours before that match.

The 19-year-old star enjoyed an excellent debut season at PSG, scoring 21 times and setting up 16 in 46 games in all competitions.
