Mbappe suffers broken nose during France win

 


Kylian Mbappe suffered a broken nose during France's opening game at Euro 2024 but will not need immediate surgery.

The French Football Federation said a mask will be made for their captain, but it is not yet known if he will play against the Netherlands on Friday.

The 25-year-old forward was forced off during Monday's 1-0 win over Austria after his face hit opponent Kevin Danso's shoulder in the follow-through from an aerial challenge.

He was taken to Dusseldorf hospital where the break was confirmed.

"He has returned to the base camp of the French team," the FFF said.

"He will undergo treatment in the coming days, without undergoing surgery immediately."
