Will Kylian Mbappe return for France’s must-win game against Poland in Euro 2024?

If Mbappe performs well in the friendly, he is expected to feature prominently in the match against Poland at the end of the Euro 2024 group stage

Kylian Mbappe was expected to lead France’s charge at UEFA Euro 2024 as their star player and captain, but his status remains uncertain after suffering a broken nose in France’s opener against Austria. Although the injury did not require surgery, Mbappe missed the last match against the Netherlands, being named a substitute but not playing. France’s next game is against Poland on June 25, a crucial match that could determine the top spot in Group D.

Kylian Mbappe to play a friendly ahead of France vs Poland

According to L’Équipe, Mbappe is expected to participate in a friendly match against the Paderborn youth team. Despite being initially listed for the France-Netherlands match in the second round of Euro 2024, coach Didier Deschamps chose to rest him to avoid aggravating his injury. The decision was made with the long-term goal of keeping Mbappe fit for the remainder of the tournament.

Mbappe’s anticipated return was discussed extensively during the preparation period for France’s second match in the European Championship. However, the French training staff determined that the risk of a prolonged absence due to a possible aggravation of his injury was too great. France is focused on a deep run in the tournament, making it essential to manage Mbappe’s health carefully. France has already played one practice match against the U-21 Paderborn team, involving players who did not participate in the match against Austria.

If Mbappe performs well in the friendly, he is expected to feature prominently in the match against Poland at the end of the Euro 2024 group stage. His presence would be a significant boost for France as they aim to secure the top spot in Group D and advance further in the tournament.
