Mbappe's Euro 2024 fate in jeopardy amid controversial nose fracture

Kylian Mbappe suffered a broken nose during France’s intense Euro 2024 match against Austria, as confirmed by officials. The talented striker endured this horrific injury in the final moments of Les Bleus’ hard-fought 1-0 victory, resulting in a visually disturbing scene on the pitch. Mbappe, renowned for his skill and dramatic flair, received extensive medical attention before being forced to leave the field.

However, the drama didn’t end there. Mbappe, in a classic maneuver, reentered the game without the referee’s approval, clearly attempting to waste time. This deliberate action led to him being shown a yellow card as he dramatically fell back to the ground.

This injury now poses a question mark over Mbappe’s availability for France’s crucial match against the Netherlands this Friday. The absence of the Frenchman could have a significant impact on Deschamps’ strategic plans. The timing of his injury couldn’t have been worse, considering his recent high-profile transfer to Real Madrid and his aspirations of winning an international trophy.
