Boost for Socceroos as Mbappe hurt in France training

Boost for Socceroos as Mbappe hurt in France training

The Paris Saint-Germain forward crumpled to the floor after the challenge from Rami and remained on the ground for several minutes as the medical staff assessed the injury.

Despite his youth, Mbappe flew to Russian Federation on Monday as one of the tournament's most recognisable figures and was expected to play a key role in France's bid to win their second World Cup.

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. PS: "And leave my friend Rami, it was not mean".

The incident left Rami red-faced, with France opening up their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation on Saturday, when they play Australia at 11am BST.

While France's first 2018 World Cup match against Australia is set to kick off on Saturday, nothing has been announced yet regarding the severity of the injury.

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.

But the 19-year-old sensation has provided a promising update and also sent a reassuring message to Rami.
