Kylian Mbappe was forced to leave France‘s opening Nations League group match against Denmark at the Stade de France due to injury.

After completing a pass to Monaco‘s Aurelien Tchouameni before the conclusion of the first half, the Paris Saint-Germain striker remained on the ground in pain.

The striker, who was wanted by Real Madrid before signing a new deal to stay in Paris until 2025, was seen touching his left knee before being treated by French doctors on the pitch.

Although he managed to walk off the field and head to the dressing room on his own power, he didn’t return for the second half, with Christopher Nkunku taking his place.

Three more Nations matches for France

Mbappe had looked lively throughout the opening half, starting on the left flank and linking up well with Karim Benzema.

The duo had combined in what they thought was the opening goal of the match, only for the Real Madrid man’s effort to be ruled offside.

Following his exit from Friday’s match, there are now doubts as to Mbappe‘s status for France‘s upcoming Nations League group matches.

Les Bleus will take on Croatia on two occasions and Austria once, with all eyes now on whether Mbappe will be available.
