PSG Star Mbappe Withdraws From France Duty Due To Injury
The star striker has endured a difficult start to the season after missing a month with a hamstring problem.
Kylian Mbappe has withdrawn from France national team duty due to an injury setback, the France federation has confirmed.
Mbappe will miss his side’s upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Iceland on Friday and against Turkey on Monday.
“After having spoken with the player, who was following a protocol of recovery since Monday, and Franck Le Gall, the doctor of the French team, [France manager] Didier Deschamps decided to return the player to his club, Paris Saint-Germain,” a statement from the French federation read.
“Kylian Mbappe will leave Clairefontaine Wednesday morning. The staff of the France national team wishes a quick return to Kylian.”
Borussia Monchengladbach striker Alassane Plea has been called up in Mbappe’s place and is expected to report at Clairefontaine on Wednesday.
The injury setback continues a difficult early-season period for Mbappe, who has already missed a month of action with a hamstring injury.
Mbappe made his return from that injury on September 28 against Bordeaux, before making another appearance off the bench on the bench in the Champions League against Galatasaray on October 1.
But the 20-year-old then suffered another injury and had to miss PSG’s match against Angers at Parc des Princes on Saturday.
PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel insisted that Mbappe’s new injury was not a recurrance of his previous injury.
“He’s not suffered a relapse,” Tuchel said last week. It’s a reaction between the scar and the nerve. I understand that it’ll take a bit of time to treat the scar.
“He felt very free but now there’s been a small reaction. When he feels that, he is not loose.”
