BREAKING: Kylian Mbappe To Play Rest Of EURO 2024 With Customised Nose Mask

BREAKING: Kylian Mbappe To Play Rest Of EURO 2024 With Customised Nose Mask—Kylian Mbappe broke his nose during France’s 1-0 victory over Austria at Euro 2024 but will be able to play in a mask, the French Football Federation has said.

 

Mbappe suffered the injury late on when he came together with Austrian defender Kevin Danso going up for a header, before he was substituted and taken for x-rays.

It was feared he would need surgery and spend some time on the sidelines but it appears he will be able to return to action, although no timeline has yet been given.

“Kylian Mbappe suffered a broken nose during the second half of the Austria v France match this Monday in Duesseldorf,” a statement from the federation said.

“The captain of the French team was first taken care of by the medical staff and doctor Franck Le Gall, who diagnosed a broken nose. Diagnosis confirmed during radiological examinations at the Duesseldorf hospital.

“Kylian Mbappe has returned to the base camp of the French team. He will undergo treatment in the coming days, without undergoing surgery immediately.

“A mask will be made so as to allow the number 10 of the French team to consider resuming competition after a period devoted to treatment.”

Mbappe himself posted on social media asking his followers for design ideas.

France are among the favourites to clinch the title and take on the Netherlands in their next group game on Friday before playing Poland the following Tuesday.
