France is worried about striker Kylian Mbappé after the European Championship match against Austria. According to “L’Equipe”, he broke his nose and is in a clinic in Düsseldorf. He is facing an injury break – with or without an operation.

Superstar Kylian Mbappé apparently broke his nose during the French national football team’s opening victory at the European Championships. This is reported by the French sports newspaper “L’Equipe”. However, an exact diagnosis is still pending. Pictures show Mbappé getting into an ambulance. The superstar was taken to the Düsseldorf University Hospital. There, a decision will be made whether his nose will be operated on.

National coach Didier Deschamps was not too optimistic after the 1-0 win against Austria in Düsseldorf: “He is not feeling well at all. He is now at the doctors. I can’t say anything more about it. But it is complicated.” Deschamps later said: “We didn’t lose any feathers, but we did lose a nose.”

Mbappé sustained the injury shortly before the end of the match in a tackle when he hit Kevin Danso’s shoulder with full force with his nose during an attempted header. A scene ensued after that.

In the 85th minute, coach Didier Deschamps was furious on the sidelines. Although his captain was standing next to him with a bleeding nose, he was not allowed to make any substitutions in the final phase against Austria. Then Kylian Mbappé took matters into his own hands.

Mbappé went for a header after a free kick and crashed into Kevin Danso’s shoulder in a challenge. Mbappé remained dazed on the pitch, his nose bleeding. After a short treatment, it was clear that he had to be substituted.

Olivier Giroud got ready on the sidelines, but unlike the Austrians, France was not allowed to make any substitutions. Even when the ball went out of play again, Deschamps was unable to bring on a fresh player because the Austrians took the throw-in quickly.

Austria own goal and fuss about Mbappé – France’s opening victory in video

The French national team fought hard to win against Austria. An own goal by Wöber decided the match. In the final phase, the heavily bleeding French superstar Mbappé caused a great stir. The highlights in the video.

So Mbappé took matters into his own hands. The 25-year-old took three steps onto the field while the game was in progress and then sank to the ground so that referee Jesus Gil Manzano would stop the game. The Spaniard did just that. He went up to the superstar and showed him the yellow card for entering the field without permission. The French were finally able to make a substitution. Deschamps brought on veteran Giroud for Mbappé, who was being treated on the bench.

The striker disappeared into the catacombs immediately after the final whistle. “I thought my team was solid today. They lacked a bit of precision. But starting with a win is something you can get used to. We’ll have to see how Mbappé is doing. That’s the dark spot of the evening,” said Deschamps.
