Euro 2024: Deschamps speaks on Mbappe’s availability for Netherlands game

The head coach of France national team, Didier Deschamps has hinted that Kylian Mbappe could play in their second Euro 2024 fixture against the Netherlands.

Mbappe cropped a nose injury in their slim win over Austria few days ago and that put question mark on his availability for France in subsequent game for the Les Blues at the Euro 2024.

.However, the Real Madrid-bound striker returned to training on Tuesday and could now be involved on Friday.

“I can confirm that Kylian Mbappe is feeling better and all is evolving well to see him available for tomorrow,” Deschamps said.

“It’s moving in the right direction.”

Mbappe is expected to have a custom mask made for him ahead of the match.

France will slug it out with Neherlands on Tuesday as both teams seek qualification for the knock out phase of the competition.
