French forward Kylian Mbappe will not play in the remaining group stage matches of Euro 2024, as reported by French publication Le Figaro.

Mbappe sustained a broken nose during France’s opening match against Austria on June 17, which ended in a 1-0 victory for Les Bleus.

The injury occurred when Mbappe, in the opponent’s penalty area during a set piece, collided with an Austrian defender. Due to this injury, he is confirmed to miss the upcoming matches against the Netherlands and Poland, scheduled for June 21 and 25 respectively.

Impact on France’s Campaign

This development is a significant blow for Didier Deschamps’ team as they navigate the group stage without one of their star players. Mbappe’s absence could impact the team’s attacking dynamics and overall performance, given his pivotal role in France’s offensive strategy.

Potential Return for Knockout Stages

There remains a possibility that Mbappe could return for the knockout stages, provided he recovers in time. If he does make a return, he will likely be required to wear a protective mask to safeguard his nose during matches.
